Texas Tech DC David Gibbs: ‘The future is bright’

The future looks promising for Texas Tech football, says defensive coordinator David Gibbs.

Gibbs met with the media  after the Red Raiders threw a lot of cash at him to keep him in Lubbock, Texas.

On Friday, Gibbs spoke with the media and said, “I want to be here and my family wants to be here. I came here to do a job. We are far from perfect and have a lot of stuff to work on, but the future is bright,” according to Texas Tech football’s Twitter account.

Texas Tech topped Texas in its regular-season finale to clinch bowl eligibility with a 6-6 record. The Red Raiders will face former Longhorns coach Charlie Strong and the South Florida Bulls in the Birmingham Bowl on Dec. 23 at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Texas Tech’s defense is making gradual progress in the right direction. The Red Raiders went from giving up 43.5 points per game in 2016 to 31.8 points per game in 2017.

Texas Tech entered the AP Top 25 on Oct. 8 after starting the year with a 4-1 record. It was the first time Texas Tech had been ranked since Nov. 3, 2013.

Texas Tech will try to win its first bowl game since that 2013 season when it knocked off Arizona State 37-23 in the Holiday Bowl. Regardless, it seems like Texas Tech is headed in the right direction.
