Was just announced on ESPN. He was said to have treated some of the players wrong. One of ESPN's college football analyst's, Craig James, son was supposedly locked into an electrical closet.

Yeh, they said Leach had him in there after the player suffered a mild concussion.

They fired right before he was supposed to get like a 100K bonus.

He had just signed an extension back in Feb too.

T.T. is stupid... They are going to be horrible yet again. I never liked Leach but he seemed to be a decent coach.

I'm a Red Raider. I went to several games during my time at Tech. Was a big fan of Leach's offense and of the guy in general.

I'll say that Tech has some real problems with coach and administration relations. There was a shouting match between the Chancellor and Bobby Knight when I was there, the AD and Leach not getting along. It's ridiculous. I'd like to hear more of what Leach did, what his reasons were, etc. There's no chance he comes back though. That said, with the money TTU has generated in football, they can afford to pay a solid coach. They won't be as good without that spread offense, but they could remain a quality top 30 program.

Don't get your info about this story from ESPN because they aren't reporting the whole story

They aren't presenting all the facts in the case so they can protect their own employee. Craig James's son is the one involved and they are showing a conflict of interest and basically ignoring most of the facts in the case to protect James. ESPN is being one sided

Lubbock's local paper might be a good source to get "the other side" or an objective look, depending upon how you think of the matter:

Here's an account of James's situation: http://www.lubbockon...540895533.shtml

Quote from Craig James on the matter: http://www.lubbockon...541088266.shtml

Legal counsel for Leach responds to firing: http://www.lubbockon...541265620.shtml
