I've never heard of Trouble With Tribbles being offered to Tige Andrews. It was my understanding that William Campbell got the role because John Colicos was unavailable to reprise Kor.
My source for that was Memory Alpha, which does mention the story as coming from a book I had (and is probably buried in a box around here somewhere).

Kras was initially planned to feature as the main Klingon in "The Trouble with Tribbles". However, Tige Andrews was unable to reprise the role because the production could not fit into his schedule, as he was busy elsewhere with something that couldn't wait. Joseph Pevney noted, "Tige would have been exceptional." (The Star Trek Interview Book, p. 195)
