Texas Tech Head Coach Billy Gillispie Calls 911

By Jovan Alford

As we all know Texas Tech Head Basketball Coach Billy Gillispie has been going through some things this week but this right here just makes his week just a lot more interesting.

According to a report from the Lexington Herald Leader, Gillispie called 911 early Friday morning saying that he was in extreme pain and was ultimately fearing he was having a heart attack or stroke.

Today, Gillispie spoke with the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal and he claims he didn’t know his team was meeting with the school’s AD to talk about how he was mistreating them during offseason practices.

Gillispie also told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that “there will be an appropriate time to talk about that and right now I’m trying to get better.” This Billy Gillispie story just gets more interesting by the day, with new reports, stories, and allegations.

Gillispie used to be one of the biggest name head coaches in college basketball building up programs such as UTEP and Texas A&M. Then he moved onto the University of Kentucky and failed miserably getting fired two years into his contract.

Finally, he went back to his home state of Texas and took over Texas Tech but did not do so well last season as the Red Raiders went 8-23. Hopefully, coach Gillispie can turn around his coaching career and this program before its too late.
