Former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury wasn’t out of work long.
According to multiple reports, the University of Southern California has hired Kingsbury as its new offensive coordinator.
Kingsbury replaces Tee Martin, who was let go last week by head coach Clay Helton.
The Trojans offense averaged just 26.1 points and finihed with 2989 passing yards this season.
In his six seasons at Texas Tech, Kingsbury’s Red Raiders averaged 37.8 points and more than 380 passing yards per game. Texas Tech never averaged less than 30 points a game per season with Kingsbury as head coach.
Texas Tech announced on Kingsbury would not return on November 25 following the Red Raiders season-ending loss to Baylor.
Before returning to his alma mater, Kingsbury spent one season as Texas A&M’s offensive coordinator helping coach eventual Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
