Kingsbury: 'You've got to tone down the trash talking as a head coach'

First year Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury could probably go on for days when talking about the changes that he's noticed since switching gears from offensive coordinator to head coach.

One of the big things that Kingsbury has noticed so far during spring practices is that he's had to tone down his trash talking.

"You've got to tone the trash talking down during practice, as opposed to being the offensive coordinator when you can yell at the defense." Kingsbury joked before adding that the job that defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt has been doing has made his role as a head coach much easier.

If you've seen the energy and ethusiasm that Kingsbury brings to the practice field, you can imagine how hard that must be at times. If you haven't, this mic'd up clip paints a very clear picture.
