Craig James has now effectively given 2 college programs the death penalty. He's the only winner in this fiasco over here. Definitely not the fans, the players, the other coaches. Gerald Myers the AD at Tech is still sore and hotheaded over the contract negotiations from last February. I feel bad for the players and assistant coaches stuck in the middle just wanting to play a bowl game.

Didn't TT and Gerald Meyers hire Bobby Knight after Knight was fired at Indiana for, among other things, choking a player? It's more than Leach giving a player closet therapy for a concussion.

Texas Tech will never have the success they have had with Leach with any other coach. I bet Texas Tech goes after Mike Price.

This is a horrible decision. It makes the whole program and administration at Texas Tech look bush league. Who would want to coach at a school that plays "Daddy" ball?
