If I'm Texas Tech, there's only one real call I make now that Sonny Dykes is in California: to A&M for Kliff Kingsbury. He's a Tech alum that runs exactly the style of offense that lured recruits to Lubbock in the first place. Yes, he's quite young, but it's late enough in the coaching carousel game that you're probably not going to pull an established presence. Kingsbury makes all the sense in the world for you whether you see it or not.
Here's a bit from twitter about the announcement:

Tommy Tuberville had been trying to get out of Tech almost as soon as he'd arrived. Tried for Miami job when Al Golden got it.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) December 8, 2012

Texas Tech: 1st call to Briles (hangs up), then Dana (burps, hangs up), Kingsbury (rubs Heisman trophy, hangs up). Leach (cackles, hangs up)— Carson Cunningham (@CarsonC5) December 8, 2012
Press conference today, so it is confirmed from all accounts.
