The search for Leach's replacement continues

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The search for Mike Leach's replacement continues at Texas Tech on Tuesday morning.

Interim Head Coach Ruffin McNeill met with Tech President Guy Bailey and Athletic Director Gerald Myers on Monday.

McNeill led the Raiders to victory last weekend at the Alamo Bowl.

Former Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville, whose mother is from Seminole, has also expressed interest in the job and could be interviewed next.

Other candidates being mentioned are Baylor Coach Art Briles and Arizona Offensive Coordinator Sonny Dykes, son of former Tech Coach Spike Dykes.

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