Texas Tech officials announced Saturday that Tommy Tuberville will be the school's next coach.

School officials gave out the the information in a news release that said Tuberville will be introduced by university and athletic department administrators Sunday.

Tuberville will succeed Mike Leach, who was fired last month amid allegations he mistreated a player who suffered a concussion.

Tuberville stepped down at Auburn in December 2008, ending a 10-year tenure that included a perfect season and a string of teams that contended for Southeastern Conference championships.

The 55-year-old Tuberville was 85-40 at Auburn, including a 13-0 season in 2004 when the Tigers finished No. 2, won the SEC title for the first time in 15 years and Tuberville was named AP Coach of the Year.
