Texas Tech looking at multiple Tommys

It looks like Tuberville isn't the only Tommy that Texas Tech is looking at. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported Tuesday that Tommy Bowden, the former Clemson head coach and son of Bobby Bowden is also being looked at to replace Mike Leach. The irony here being that Tuberville replaced Bowden's brother Terry as head coach at Auburn (with Bill Oliver in the interim).
Yet again, the Leach-Adam James comparisons show up. Tuberville was a coach who had issues with boosters. On the other hand, Bowden is the son of a famous personality in football. Both have had unbeaten seasons that did not end up with anything close to the mythical "national championship" (Tuberville at Auburn, Bowden at Tulane).
