Beard to Texas Tech from UNLV: UNLV Athletics Director Tina Kunzer-Murphy statement regarding Chris Beard "Coach Beard has informed me he intends to pursue the men's basketball head coaching job at Texas Tech. This unprecedented move is extremely disappointing to the President and I, for our program and to our fans. Our search process allowed us to develop a deep pool of qualified candidates, from which we will select a great coach who really wants to be here and who will honor his commitments in leading the Runnin' Rebels."
