Chris Beard says it was the most difficult decision in his life to return to his alma mater at Texas.

Beard had a highly successful five-year run at Texas Tech.

It included a loss in the national championship game in 2019.

Texas has not won an NCAA Tournament game since 2014, and have been to only one NCAA Final Four since 1947.

Beard says he knows the expectations are high at Texas.

He says that's what he has signed up for.
