The biggest basketball question in the coaching world right now remains whether or not the Texas Longhorns can lure Chris Beard away from Lubbock to Austin.
There might be some signs that Texas Tech fans want to read into that suggest Beard is a happy man with the Red Raiders and has no plans to go anywhere, however no one really knows.
Well, here’s what Las Vegas is thinking when it comes to who will be the next head coach of the Longhorns. The odds come from BetOnline.ag.
Odds to be next Texas head basketball coach
Chris Beard 1/1
Royal Ivey 5/1
John Calipari 11/2
Russell Springmann 7/1
Eric Musselman 15/2
Brad Underwood 8/1
Mike Boynton 8/1
John Beilein 9/1
Porter Moser 10/1
Kelvin Sampson 12/1
Rick Pitino 12/1
Dana Altman 14/1
Joe Golding 16/1
That is a huge drop off from Beard, listed at 1/1, to Royal Ivey at 5/1. The fact that Beard is even money odds to go to Austin is also something that would concern me if I was a Texas Tech fan.
Texas Tech basketball is coming off a season that saw them lose in the second round of the NCAA Tournament to Arkansas, however what Beard has accomplished during his tenure in Lubbock is incredibly impressive, including a run to the 2019 NCAA Tournament Championship Game.
