Responds to Baker Mayfield
… ‘I’m a Huge Fan’

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury heard all the unkind things Baker Mayfield said about him on his new docuseries — and now, he’s got some quotes of his own for his former QB.
As we previously reported, Mayfield said Kingsbury treated him GREAT at TT during his freshman year … only to kick him to the curb when he suffered a knee injury during a game against Kansas.
Both Baker and his father went in on Kingsbury during the FOX Sports series ‘All The Way Up’ — and said the final straw was when TT refused to offer him a scholarship, despite racking up 5 wins as a walk-on.
We reached out to Kingsbury for comment and he told us:
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Baker and loved working with him. He had an incredible career at Oklahoma, and I wish him nothing but continued success as he begins his NFL career.”
High road, to say the least … but he also isn’t disputing any of the claims Mayfield made on the show.
