LUBBOCK, Tx. (KMVT/KSVT) — A former College of Southern Idaho men’s basketball coach is leaving the Beaver State for the Lone Star State.

Portland State head coach Barret Peery just accepted the job of associate head coach at Texas Tech.

The Red Raiders reached the Round of 32 in this year’s NCAA Tournament.

He’s not the only new face in Lubbock, the Red Raiders introduced their new head coach, Mark Adams on Tuesday.

In the past couple of years, Peery coached two former CSI All-Americans Charles Jones Jr. and Khalid Thomas. The latter was second on the team in scoring this season at 11.2 ppg.

Peery coached the Golden Eagles from 2003 to 2008 and was the head coach for the last three years of that timeframe.

While he’s been an assistant for Power Five teams before, this is the biggest role so far.
