Parr begins his third season at Texas Tech and his first as Director of Player Personnel.

In 2009, Parr guided an offensive unit that ranked 14th nationally in total offense and a passing offense ranked sixth - throwing for over 350 yards per game.

During the 2008 season, Parr's offensive unit scored 50 or more points on six occasions while breaking no fewer than 64 team, conference and NCAA playoff records. Among them were records for most yards total offense (7,079), total offensive yards per game (544.5), total points scored (626) and points per game (48.1). Under his guidance, quarterback Keith Null shattered the WT and LSC records for passing yardage (5,097), passing yards/game (392.1) and highest completion percentage/season (67.5), among others. West Texas ranked 1st nationally again in pass offense at 428.6 yards per game, 2nd in total offense at 544.7 yards per game, and 2nd in scoring offense at 48.6 yards per game.

In 2007, Parr's offensive unit continued their record-breaking ways, setting then-WT and Lone Star Conference records for most yards passing in a single-season, most single-game completions, season-completions, season-yards per game and total passing yards (all of which were broken in 2008). West Texas ranked 3rd Nationally in total offense at 529.6 points per game, 1st in passing offense at 396.5 points per game, and 7th in total offense at 529.6 yards per game.

In his first season with the Buffs' program, Parr helped to direct the WT offense to another spectacular season, as the unit ranked second nationally in team passing yards by averaging 326.1 per game. In addition, 10 WT offensive players earned All-Lone Star Conference South honors, including receiver Charly Martin, who also captured numerous All-American accolades.

Parr came to WTAMU from LSC-member, Tarleton State, where he coached the Texans' wide receivers for one season. Prior to Tarleton, Parr served as a graduate assistant for two seasons at Baylor, working with the team's tight ends. During his time in Waco, Parr earned his master's in Education in 2004.

Before moving to Baylor, Parr was the wide receivers coach at another LSC foe, Abilene Christian, for three seasons. While at ACU, he coached alongside current West Texas A&M head coach Don Carthel. During that time, the Wildcats won a share of the LSC South title in 2002, leading the conference in passing offense. Parr also served a stint as running backs coach at Sam Houston State for two seasons, including the 1999 campaign in which SHSU led the Southland Conference in total offense. While at Sam Houston State, Parr earned his master's degree in Kinesiology.

Parr earned his bachelor's degree in Exercise & Sport Science from Hardin-Simmons University in 1998. He began his coaching career there in 1997 as a student assistant, working with HSU's quarterbacks. During his playing days, Parr was a wide receiver at Hardin-Simmons and was a key element on three Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship teams.

Both Parr and his wife, the former Kyla Flippo, are natives of Plainview, Texas. The couple are the parents of a daughter, Berkeley.
