Though no official announcement has yet been made from Texas Tech, it's now apparent that Kirby Hocutt will succeed outgoing athletic director Gerald Myers.
University of Miami president Donna E. Shalala issued a statement to that effect early Friday afternoon.
"I am deeply disappointed that after only two-and-a-half years of a very successful tenure as leader of our athletics programs, Kirby Hocutt has decided to accept the AD position at Texas Tech," her statement read. "We did everything we could to convince him to stay, but in the end it was an intensely personal decision. I thank Kirby for his integrity, leadership, and dedication to the University."
