When Joey McGuire showed up in Lubbock to be the Red Raiders head coach he made some promises in his introductory press conference. There were a few we won't know the ending to until later on. Like his claim that Texas Tech will play defense, or that he'll die the Red Raiders coach.

Other points and promises though have already been kept. First, he's recruited the heck out of West Texas. That can't really be denied. More so than any coach since Spike Dykes really. On par at the very least with what Mike Leach was doing by bringing in West Texas players.

McGuire also promised energy and passion, which is fairly obvious to anyone paying attention that that has also been kept.

One other promise that now has been kept, or rather a suggestion that was taken, is that Joey McGuire and Jeff Traylor are now on the cover of Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine.

"I'm going to challenge Dave Campbell's Magazine right now," Joey said at his press conference. From McGuire's lips to the cover of the magazine.

McGuire commented on the honor on Twitter, saying, "As a former Texas High School player and a Texas High School coach there is no bigger honor."

McGuire joins three of the five most recent Texas Tech head coaches to don the cover of one of the most iconic magazines in Texas.

There have also been a number of players to be on the magazine's cover as well. Kingsbury was on the cover as both a player and a coach. Dykes graced the cover multiple times as the head coach of Texas Tech. Here's every Red Raider who's been on the cover:

5 Things That Should Excite You About Zach Kittley's Texas Tech Offense

Zach Kittley returns home to Lubbock and Texas Tech as the chosen one to bring back an electric offense to the Hub City that hasn't been seen since Kliff Kingsbury was roaming the sidelines. Can he do it? I believe he can, but I don't think the offense will resemble what he was putting out at Western Kentucky in year one at Texas Tech. Here are 5 things that excite me about Kittley's potential as the Red Raiders' offensive coordinator.
