New Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville has probably shook a few thousand hands during the past month.
Tuberville spoke to more than 1,000 Texas Tech fans at an alumni event in Dallas. He spoke to another 500 fans in Houston. Tuberville threw out the first pitch at the Texas Tech baseball team’s season opener last week, and he has tried to attend as many Red Raiders basketball games as possible.
“It’s been great,” Tuberville said of his reception in Lubbock. “It’s been really good. I go out and shake hands and do all the things you need to do from a PR standpoint. I tell people who we are and what they can expect. I’ve been all over Texas speaking to Kiwanis clubs and Lions clubs.”
