Ruffin McNeill says "double yes" if offered Head Coach job

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - In a news conference on Wednesday afternoon from San Antonio, Interim Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Ruffin McNeill said "double-yes" when asked if he would like to become head coach for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Also in the news conference, he addressed the news of Leach's firing, and what he will say to his friend when he talks to him.

According to the University's website, the Red Raiders Defensive Coordinator is one of the most versatile coaches on the staff and also one of the most beloved by the team.

McNeill is currently in his 10th season with the Raiders.

Texas Tech has not commented on a possible replacement for Leach. At this time, McNeill is acting as head coach leading up to and during the Alamo Bowl.
