Tommy Tuberville in Lubbock for Tech head coach interview

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11 was at the Texas Tech Athletic Department when Tommy Tuberville, a candidate for Texas Tech head football coach and former Auburn coach, arrived to get ready for his interview.

Tuberville is expected to meet with Tech President Guy Bailey at 11 a.m. and then expected to meet with Chancellor Kent Hance shortly after.

Tuberville was the Head Coach at Auburn University from '97 until 2008. In '08, Tuberville led Auburn to an 9-4 mark, including a 5-3 record in the Southeastern Conference.

Interim Head Coach Ruffin McNeill also interviewed for the job, on Monday, with Tech President Guy Bailey and Athletic Director Gerald Myers, but not with Chancellor Hance.

Other coaches that are expected to interview for the head coach position are Baylor Coach Art Briles and Arizona Offensive Coordinator, son of former Tech Coach Spike Dykes, Sonny Dykes.

Bailey says he hopes to announce the new coach by the end of the week.
