Lubbock, TX-- To college basketball now and ordinarily when the coach a coach at Texas Tech University gets fired, well it's not necessarily news for our area. However when that coach lives part of the year in Panama City Beach, it is. That's the case for Pat Knight, who has been told by Texas Tech president Guy Bailey it's time for a change.
Knight 50-60 in basically three full seasons there, failing to make the NCAA tourney. He will coach the team through it's conference tourney. He says he is confident he'll get another head coaching gig somewhere. Pat bought a home in P-C Beach a few years ago, telling me given his profession, he wanted a stable place to call his own, no matter what what going on his career.
