Also on Monday, Neal Brown, the team's offensive coordinator the past three years, resigned to take the same job at Kentucky. The Red Raiders play Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston on Dec. 28. Thomsen was 51-21 in seven seasons at Abilene Christian and led the Wildcats to the NCAA Division II playoffs six consecutive seasons. He arrived at Texas Tech in February.
