Joey McGuire says NIL expansion for Texas Tech football ‘huge’ for roster development

The Matador Club collective that supports Texas Tech athletes plans to expand the scope of its program for the football team this coming school year. Matador Club board of directors member Cody Campbell said the program now will cover 120 players at $25,000 a year, up from 105 players at the same annual amount this past year.

In Joey McGuire’s estimation, Nebraska coach Tom Osborne in his heyday had college football’s best walk-on program and Texas Tech coach Spike Dykes had one of the best.

McGuire has something neither of the previous generation of coaching luminaries had: structured, legal financial support for players who enter a program without a scholarship. Next season, more Red Raiders players will be in position to benefit.

The Matador Club that supports Texas Tech athletes plans to cover 120 Tech football players, Cody Campbell, one of the collective’s founders, said this past week. The club in July 2022 signed 100 Tech football players to annual agreements of $25,000 apiece, then bumped the number to 105 shortly thereafter.
