Mears Mazda Volvo Fires Off a Burn at Reagor-Dykes Auto Group
Wednesday's breaking news of the bankruptcy filing by the Reagor-Dykes Motor Group came to the joy of at least one auto dealer in Lubbock.
Bob Mears of Mears Mazda Volvo in Lubbock said on Facebook: "Anybody at the Texas Tech athletics department need a ride home tonight, give me a call at Mears Mazda Volvo."
If you don't understand the context of Mears' post, here it is:
In college sports, particularly for football, auto dealers are allowed to provide complementary vehicles for head coaches and assistant coaches. Texas Tech Athletics refers to the auto dealers they work with as "Car Coaches."
In the 2017 Texas Tech Football program, Reagor-Dykes is among the local and West Texas dealerships listed as part of the "Car Coach Program." Mears Mazda Volvo is not listed in last year's Texas Tech Football program. (See the full listing below.)
So, at the end of the day, Mears was saying if any of the Reagor-Dykes Auto Group vehicles were taken away from any Texas Tech coaches, he would step up and provide a vehicle.
