Several sources confirmed to Frogs O' War this morning that Sonny Cumbie had officially accepted the position of offensive coordinator at TCU and would be leaving Texas Tech. Cumbie will be a co-offensive coordinator alongside Doug Meacham. According to these sources, several high school coaches were informed Friday of the move, along with current Texas Tech recruits and commits.

The hiring process, which can take more than five days, should conclude next week. Cumbie is expected to receive a substantial pay raise at TCU compared to the $210,000 salary he collected at Tech.

Friday, Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury acknowledged a job offer had been made to Cumbie but did not mention if he had or had not accepted it. Requests for comment from TCU Athletics were denied.

There has been no formal statement regarding the status of current TCU offensive coordinators, Rusty Burns and Jarrett Anderson, but Fort Worth Star Telegram sources quoted earlier this week indicated both coached had been offered "other positions within TCU athletics."
