Billy Gillispie confirmed he has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next coach at Texas Tech in a text message to ESPN.com's Andy Katz.

It's been a rough go for Tech basketball recently and Gillispie should help rejuvenate the lackluster program. His familiarity with the Big 12 and great recruiting skills should help turn this program around in a few years. It's hard not to be happy with this hire if you're a Tech fan.
