Chris Beard coached in the National Championship game last April. When he walked off the court, he was already working on the next season.

He'd go on to send Jarrett Culver to the NBA, lock in the best-rated recruiting class in Texas Tech history, grab two of the best grad transfers on the market, earn a big extension, and take his team to the Bahamas.

He's been a busy coach this off-season.

He's also been making moves in his personal life.

That's right: Coach Beard is engaged to his long-time girlfriend and Frenship Volleyball Coach Randi Trew.

Congratulations to Chris Beard and his fiance, Randi!
