LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach, who was accused of mistreating a player who had a "mild" concussion, has been fired by the university.

I allready called the school and told them not to expect my check for next year or any year after. I think it's time for the alumni's to show how much we are disappointed and embarassed by this situation.

isnt he gonna get paid 400k for the next 4 years or something by Texas Tech now since he's been fired?

Personally, I think the AD was looking for a way out. They have bad blood. Leach appealing and filing the TRO just pissed him off more. He was going to get fired no matter the results, IMO.


Oh. And I also think this Adam James kid is a fucking pussy. Didn't the Dad say he hasn't even talked to Leach about the matter? It was a way out, and the AD jumped on it. I bet Leach sues Tech.

I heard this morning, that one of Leach's past offensive coaches told Leach to not even sign the Jame's kid, because he was not a D-1 level player.

I do find it interesting how controversy followed the dad and the son in college. Just a coincidence I am sure.

Hearing didn't happen. Leachs lawyer got to the court house and they handed him a letter stating that he was fired because of a breach of contract. So there was no need for the hearing.

Goodbye TT

Texas Tech will go back to sucking ass (Don't get me wrong I like(d) Texas Tech, but now some fucking cawk polisher cried to daddy and a whole program is gonna die. The kid sucked anyway, They announced on espn that the kid was complaining to other coaches that some of the coaches were not doing there jobs. He was a whine bag anyway and if he wasnt craig james kid it would be business as usual, my .02. I know that kid will never get on the field!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a crazy story this has been. Can't believe the Pirate has walked the plank. (sorry, couldn't resist).

As an Aggie, i'm not going to act like i'm sad that Leach is leaving. While A&M continues to underachieve, Leach has had Tech overachieving for a decade. If I were Tech I would try to get Briles away from Baylor.

Rewind the clock about 20 years ago and treatment of the players was really no issue. The coach did what the fuck he wanted to and no one questioned it! Bunch of fucking bs. IMO it's another step towards the pussification of America.

If they are smart they will. Craig james should have gone to leach directly if he had a concern behind closed doors, not jump on espn and air this shit out like he did.

If 800k wasn't on the line, I wonder if they'd have considered things differently?

If that kid and his parents are stupid enough to let him go back to school out there, I gaurantee he gets a "jimmy clausen" rapidly.

If that happened, that would be twice Craig James screwed SMU. He would never be able to show his face in Dallas again.

I agree with that, the way the attorney described the incident yesterday it wasnt nearly as bad as James makes it out to be. Had him sit in the storage facility next to field and then in the visiting team press room.

Briles is more likely with his history and ties. Not sure I see Jones leaving SMU. He had a very successful season in his first year there and has a Frosh QB that played awesome in their bowl game. I think he'll remain at SMU. Not sure what he's getting paid but I doubt Tech would be much of an upgrade in salary.

What a crock of shit. Craig James is such a bitch. Let his son man up and work for his spot on a team instead of riding your coat tails. Oh wait, He did. He ruined a program just like Craig James did.

Mike Leach always seemed to be full of himself. Maybe they will bring in a coach who can actually compete for a conference championship instead of 4th place.

hold up on all the "he ruined this program too" talk. I don't think Tech is going on the death penalty, giving up all scholarships and choose to not have a football team one year. Or miss a bowl game for 23 seasons i might add.


i would use the word SET BACK

I was talking with my realtor this morning who works with the James' doing real estate transactions and the one thing I will say in his defense is that this wasn't the route he wanted to take. The James' originally asked for an apology for the actions and something about not letting Mike Leach abuse players as he has been know to do.

Mike Leach said fuck you.

Craig James took it to the next level. Mike Leach's ego is what brought all of this about.
