A major college football head coach has reportedly been fired. According to Joe Reinagel of KENS5, Texas Tech has fired head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

The offensive mind did wonders for the Red Raiders offense at Texas Tech, but failed to deliver more than eight wins in any of his six seasons with the team. Kingsbury led the Red Raiders to a 5-7 season this year, failing to reach a bowl game in half of his seasons with the program.

If the report is accurate, Kiingsbury becomes the latest in a rash of firings this season. Kansas fired head coach David Beaty earlier this season followed quickly by Bobby Petrino at Louisville.

Here's the news from Reinagel.

Kingbury racked up a 36-39 record in his six seasons with the team. over those six seasons, the Red Raiders won just one bowl game - in his first year as the team's head coach.

Kingsbury immediately becomes one of the hottest names in coaching with his firing. Coaches from across the country will want him on their staff.
