Donations, ticket sales skyrocket in response to Kingsbury hire

In less than 24 hours since the announcement that Kliff Kingsbury would be Texas Tech's new football coach, fans have already shown an outpouring of support.

Overnight, the Red Raider Club received $18,000 in donations.

The club set up an online giving site Wednesday night as soon as the news broke and almost $30,000 have come in so far. The Red Raider Club is not only seeing their regular donors increase their giving, but also a lot of new faces. All donations go toward the Student Athlete Scholarship Fund.

Not only have donations increased, but season ticket sales have skyrocketed as well since the announcement.

Overnight, 200 new season tickets were purchased, and as of Wednesday afternoon, over 500 were secured for next season.

A $50 deposit is required to ensure your tickets. Previous season ticket holders will receive a renewal form in the mail.
