Kirby Hocutt to Texas Tech?

Rumors are afloat in the land of twitter, with AP Sportswriter Tim Reynolds at the helm of the discussion stating that he has been told by multiple UM sources that current AD Kirby Hocutt may take the open AD job at Texas Tech.  Gerald Myers, the current Athletics Director at Texas Tech, had said that he would be retiring from his post on May 31st.  Nobody has been tapped as Myers’ successor as of yet.

I’m not sure what would go into Hocutt’s decision to leave if he were to do so, and not sure who would be in line to replace him.

Any thoughts either regarding the validity of the rumors or the potential repercussions?


EDIT: Reports that this has gone through and will be official shortly.



  1. Deep Texas roots..grew up in small town there..might be better fit…and more money. Makes sense. Word is he already interviewed.

    • Looks like this move just went through. Somebody has a potential goldmine with a Miami job that has great potential as well as strides to make in a number of sports.
