Texas Tech basketball coach Chris Beard pulled off an awesome move for a fan.

Back in August, Beard promised to officiate a random fan’s wedding if enough students showed up to the first game of the year. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Apparently enough people showed up because Beard tweeted Friday about officiating Rylee Albracht’s wedding and bringing everyone Whataburger to enjoy.

Take a look below.

This is the kind of stuff we love seeing in sports. College coaches will always have a closer connection to fans than pro coaches and players.

College fans often attend the schools they pull for, they donate money and they’re way more invested. Those are all just simple facts.

So, having the best basketball coach in the state of Texas show up and show out for your wedding is pretty damn cool.

That’s the kind of story that you’re going to be telling for a very long time. If I was getting married and Bo Ryan officiated it, I’d never stop talking about it.

Beard just gave these people that kind of memory forever.
