Chris Beard makes good on year-old wedding promise for fans
Chris Beard made good on a year-old wedding promise for some fans.
In August, a Texas Tech fan named Rylee Albracht asked Beard how many retweets she would need for him to officiate her wedding.
Hey @CoachBeardTTU , how many retweets for you to officiate my wedding?

Beard responded and said that if the student section were completely full for the team’s opener on Nov. 5, he would be at the wedding and provide Whataburger for everyone there.
Our first game of the season is Tues November 5. If the student section is 100% filled with 4500 students, I will be at your wedding and will provide Whataburger for everyone there.#4:1 https://t.co/Z6hx1xGLRp

The fans held up their end, which led Beard to recognize he would be going to the wedding.

Fast forward to Friday, and Beard shared photos on Twitter that showed him with the wedding party on Texas Tech’s football field.

That’s pretty fantastic.
Beard, 47, has been at Texas Tech for four seasons. He took the Red Raiders to the Elite Eight in his second season and to the national championship game in 2019, racking up the bonuses along the way. Now he’s racking up major points with the fans.
