However, this time its not to vouch for Gillispie. Rising star and sophomore Jordan Tolbert who led the Red Raiders in scoring as a freshman last season, does not want to play for Gillispe.
He told ESPN
"I don't. Maybe i would for the assistants. I haven't put that much thought into it. There is a big sense of urgency. I don't want to play for him if he comes back...We still can be good, but we do need a coach."
Texas Tech University at the moment has not made a statement concerning the future of Gillispie.
