Since Kliff Kingsbury's firing on Sunday, countless people have reached out to the former Texas Tech head coach via social media. The respect was shared by fans, players and more, as everyone let Kingsbury know what he meant to them.

Another person who added to the respect being piled onto the former head coach was current Texas Tech basketball coach Chris Beard, who had this to say:

It's great to see the mutual admiration between the programs at Texas Tech, even while the basketball and football programs have trended in different directions.
