With Smith now coaching at Texas Tech, the Big 12 is the only league able to boast that all of its head coaches have taken teams to the NCAA tournament. Smith is the sixth Big 12 coach who has been to the Final Four, and joins Kansas' Bill Self as a national champion.

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins twice went to the NCAA Final Four before his Mountaineers joined the league last year. He said Tuesday during a summer teleconference with the coaches that having so many quality coaches in the same league is ``extremely impressive.''

The Big 12 hosts the Final Four next year, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
