Kliff Kingsbury engages in dance-off with Texas Tech WR


Contrary to rumors, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury will not play in the Red Raiders' spring game Saturday, but he still had some fun showing off for his players earlier this week.

Flipping his visor around and sporting a T-shirt that read "Too Turnt Up," Kingsbury battled -- and we use that term loosely -- Red Raiders wide receiver Derreck Edwards in a dance-off Thursday after practice.

Kingsbury's team faded down the stretch last season, finishing 8-5 after a 7-0 start, but Kingsbury, 34, is a player's favorite for a lot of reasons.

Earlier last week on "The Dan LeBatard Show" on ESPN radio, Kingsbury -- known in some circles for his resemblance to actor Ryan Gosling -- remarked that some players' moms have flirted with him on recruiting visits, and he doesn't mind.

"You've got to play to your strengths," Kingsbury said on the show. "So I kind of encourage that a little bit. It's part of the deal, man."

Kingsbury showed again Thursday why his players like him so much.

Meanwhile, while Kingsbury -- a former Red Raiders quarterback under Mike Leach -- won't be showing off his arm in the spring game, you can bet Davis Webb will be. Webb threw for 2,718 yards and 20 TDs in 2013, when he played in 10 games. But he has made big strides this spring, and one former Red Raiders star has noticed.

Amaro is one of the top three tight ends available in the 2014 draft, and he is expected to go either late in the first round or in the second round.
