A former Red Raider is coming home. Sonny Cumbie has been named the offensive coordinator at Texas Tech. Cumbie comes from TCU where he had been the offensive coordinator since 2014. Cumbie replaces David Yost, who was let go after two seasons.
Cumbie played his college football at Texas Tech under Mike Leach. He led the nation in passing in his single season as a starter in 2004. After a brief professional career, Cumbie started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Tech under Mike Leach.
Over the next few years, Cumbie worked under not only Leach but Tommy Tuberville, where he was the inside receivers coach, and Kliff Kingsbury, where he would be the co-offensive coordinator with Eric Morris. In 2014, he took the same position at TCU. Cumbie helped TCU convert from a Pro-Style offense to a spread.
This hire is an interesting one for the program. Wells swung for the fences with this hire. In his first years as TCU’s offensive coordinator, the offense ranked in the top-5 in the nation for total offense.

Amazing thoughtful hire! Holcutt could not have done better!
He’s one of us! I hope we go back to basketball on grass!
TCU has struggled on offense 3 seasons straight . We have better options . Good luck at TT.. Offense is never been a problem for Texas Tech anyway you guys need some defense
He made TCU much better and I think he can do it at Texas Tech. Great choice!!!
Cumbie is an AWESOME choice!!!
Welcome back to Snyder/Ira/Lubbock
Finally, the Air Raid is coming back. Now, if we can concentrate on Defense so we can play both sides of the ball.
The guy that said Cumbie is nowhere as close as Graham Harrell humors me! What a stupid ass statement. I like both!!!
[…] Texas Tech has a new play caller going into the 2021 season, and with Alan Bowman transferring from the team, the quarterback position is wide open. After spring football wraps up with the spring game on April 10th, we will have a better idea of what to expect out of this team. Based on this record, Tech is going to need to get out to a good start if it wants to get back to a bowl game for the first time since 2017. My initial reaction to this schedule projects a 5-7 record for the Red Raiders. What do you think? Let Guns Up Nation know in the comments! […]
