Tubbs comes to Frogland having fashioned an absolutely amazing won-lost record during his 14 seasons at Oklahoma, as well as throughout his 20-year head coaching career. He has compiled an overall head coaching record of 439 victories, 200 defeats and a winning percentage of .687, ranking him among the NCAA's all-time winningest active coaches. "Billy Tubbs' profile as a head basketball coach is impressive, indeed," said TCU Chancellor Dr. William E. Tucker. "He has national name recognition. He's a proven and consistent winner everywhere he has been, and his teams play the style of basketball that I believe fans enjoy." Considered the "man who builds college basketball programs," the energetic Tubbs approaches the task of rebuilding a Horned Frog hoops program which notched just 12 victories over the past two seasons with maybe even greater enthusiasm than he would were he inheriting a stocked cupboard. "I believe that TCU basketball has unlimited potential," said Tubbs. "I wanted that challenge, and the administration has shown that they are committed to having an excellent basketball program. That's the key. "I still have a burning desire, sometime, to walk off the floor at the end of the season as national champion. I'm not interested in middle-of-the-pack mediocrity, and TCU has thoroughly convinced me with the commitment that TCU wants that kind of winning program." And, Frogland certainly isn't the first uphill battle Tubbs has fought. Billy Tubbs took a then-unknown Lamar team to the NCAA Tournament twice, advancing to the "Sweet 16" in their second trip. Billy Tubbs proved that you could take a dormant basketball program, located in the heart of football country, and mold it into a national power as well as feature entertainment attraction. Billy Tubbs demonstrated, rather graphically, to the'walk-it-up-the- court and win with 60 points' Big Eight Conference that the up-tempo, transitional game affectionately known as "Billyball" was the style of the future. Soon, Tubbs' brand of basketball was being played on courts across the country. Billy Tubbs has shown that he can not only win, but that he can win big ... his way. Tubbs guided Oklahoma to 13 straight winning seasons after three consecutive winning seasons at Lamar. He led the Sooners to the NCAA championship game in 1988 as the second-highest scoring team in the nation. His 1989 team finished the regular-season ranked number one in the nation. Tubbs and his wife, Pat, have two children - Tommy, currently an assistant coach at Lamar, and Taylor. Ok ■HP a JffiH Richard Bacon Asst. Coach 817/921-7968 Southwest Conference Basketball SWC
