Leach’s Lawsuit Against Texas Tech Thrown Out
The Texas Supreme Court has rejected former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach’s appeal in his wrongful termination suit.
Leach was fired amid allegations he mistreated a former player, Adam James, who was recovering from a concussion.
Leach denied the allegations and sued the school, saying the reason he was fired was because Texas Tech was going to owe him an $800,000 bonus.
The court rejected the appeal without comment.
Leach’s next step could be claiming Texas Tech denied him due process. Leach’s attorneys say they will pursue that option.
