Texas Tech Red Raiders’ head coach Kliff Kingbury is quickly turning the Lubbock, Texas into a cool place to play college football.
Kingsbury recently was shown dancing at practice (you can see the video below) and that is just one of the many examples of how Kingsbury tries to have fun in an attempt to get his players to practice well.
“I let them know I can still break it down every now and then,” Kingsbury told Dan Le Batard via Chris Vannini of 24/7 Sports. “It was the last day of spring ball, and I knew it had the potential to be terrible, just how spring ball goes. The spring game was two days away, so I knew we had to do something to turn it up. So I did that, and I guess people appreciated that. I’ll pretty much sell my soul to have a good practice. I’m not above anything.”
Perhaps Kingsbury’s most interesting moment at practice came when he was coaching under current Texas A&M Aggies’ head coach Kevin Sumlin with the Houston Cougars.
“When we were at the University of Houston (as an assistant under Kevin Sumlin), we brought an ice cream truck, but we filled it with some girls from one of the clubs, the bottle girls. That was impressive. That was a good practice…The bottle service. The cute bottle service girls. In Houston, you can do that. You can’t do that in Lubbock. There is no bottle service in Lubbock.”
In his first year as head coach of the Red Raiders, the team went 8-5 with a 4-5 record in the Big 12.
