Schefter: Tech pursuing Jets' Lynn?

Now that Texas Tech has fired Mike Leach and has an opening at head coach, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the word around the NFL is that the Red Raiders will pursue New York Jets running back coach Anthony Lynn, an alum of the school and one of the men in charge of making New York’s running game the top-rated run game in the NFL.

According to Schefter, Lynn, 41, has booster support from the school, and would be the antithesis of Leach. Lynn, who grew up in the Dallas area, would bring a more balanced attack to Texas Tech and he also would make history, becoming the first African-American head coach in the school’s history.
