Kingsbury comes home

Kliff Kingsbury is returning home.

Kingsbury, a three-year starter at Texas Tech from 2000-02, is expected to be named the Red Raiders' next head football coach. University athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the hire on his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon.

The 33-year-old Texas A&M offensive coordinator interviewed with Hocutt on Tuesday in Houston, capping off a busy four-day stretch that included a trip to New York City to watch Aggie quarterback Johnny Manziel win the Heisman Trophy.

In his first, and only, season in College Station, Kingsbury guided a prolific A&M attack that ranked third nationally in both total offense and scoring offense and helped develop Manziel into one of the nation's most exciting football players.

Stay tuned to for more on the Red Raiders' new head football coach.
