When looking at the state of the Texas Tech baseball program, athletic director Kirby Hocutt took into account more than just the disappointment that was the 2012 season.
It was in the process of looking through the last three seasons that Hocutt, in charge of the athletic program for the past 14 months, decided it was time to make a change at the top and fired Dan Spencer Sunday as head coach of the program.
. . .
Associate head coach Tim Tadlock, who came to the program in November, has been named the interim head coach until a permanent replacement is announced. Hocutt said Tadlock will be a “strong candidate” for the job and has expressed interest in the position.
“I don’t know if there’s anyone in the state of Texas that has the recruiting connections he has,” Kirby said. “I don’t know of anyone more well-respected among major league scouts than Tim Tadlock. We feel fortunate to have him here to lead the program at this time as the interim.”
