Mike Leach goes after Texas Tech administration and Craig James

Mike Leach goes after Texas Tech administration and Craig James

The Mike Leach legal team has expanded the scope of their lawsuit in their latest filing. The Leach team is now going after several key members of the Texas Tech administration as well as Craig James. All of these people are named as individuals. Here is the list of the named defendants in this latest filing:

Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance

The Leach legal is team is asserting that key members of the Texas Tech administration conspired to fire the former coach regardless of what the truth may or may not have been. According to the filing, both Jerry Turner and Kent Hance tried to interfere with the attorney investigating the allegations made by the James family.

Lawyers for Texas Tech claim that these accusations are absurd. Only time will tell how absurd they are. If the Leach Team can present any sort of credible testimony that a conspiracy occurred, Texas Tech is in major trouble. A conspiracy would make whatever happened between Adam James and Mike Leach irrelevant.

The way this looks from the outside is that Mike Leach was fired because he made too much money. The fact that he was fired the day before Texas Tech would have owed him $800,000 makes it look even more like this was only about money. This would also jive with other things going on at the university. After all, money and profitability were the issues that the dean of the honors colleges cited just a few days ago in his resignation. According to the dean, these issues go back to the beginning of the year. There is a definite pattern emerging.
