Texas Tech officially announced Friday its hiring of TCU safeties coach Chad Glasgow as its new defensive coordinator.
Glasgow, 38, was a member of Gary Patterson's original staff. Tech also promoted Otis Mounds, 39, from graduate assistant to assistant coach in charge of cornerbacks.
"It’s my goal to bring our defense to a championship level and Chad Glasgow is the right person for the job," Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said in a statement released by the school. "With his experience and knowledge of the game and recruiting, he will be a great addition to our staff."
Glasgow replaces James Willis, who was at Tech for one season.
