Texas Tech says athletic director Kirby Hocutt will hold a news conference Sunday to address the future of the football program amid reports the school is parting ways with coach Kliff Kingsbury.

The Red Raiders finished their third consecutive losing season with a 35-24 loss to Baylor on Saturday, when they had a chance to get bowl eligible. That was their fifth straight loss after a 5-2 start this year.

Kingsbury is 35-40 overall in six seasons, a .467 winning percentage that is better than only two of the other 14 Texas Tech coaches in the program’s history. The Red Raiders were 19-35 in the Big 12 under the former Red Raiders quarterback.

There are two seasons left on Kingsbury’s contract, which included a buyout of about $4 million.
