AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Texas Tech’s Mark Adams is stepping down as the team’s men’s basketball coach.

Adams was suspended earlier this week over what the university described as a racially insensitive remark during a one-on-one coaching session with a player.

Adams went 27-10 in his first year with the Red Raiders, but that was followed by a disappointing 16-15 record this season with the team expected to his the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2017.
