Chris Beard bolted UNLV to come 'home' to Texas Tech

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) From the familiar feel of West Texas winds to being closer to his three daughters, Texas Tech basketball coach Chris Beard says returning to the school he considers home was too great to resist.

So goodbye Las Vegas, hello Lubbock.

"It's like when Bear Bryant left Texas A&M for Alabama," Beard said Saturday at a campus news conference. "He said, `When momma calls, you've gotta go home.' Texas Tech is my momma and I'm home. I'm so glad to be here."
