Mike Leach Fired as Texas Tech Football Coach

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Mike Leach's attorney says he plans to sue Texas Tech over his client's firing.  Leach was fired Wednesday-two days after Tech suspended him while investigating his treatment of a player with a concussion. Tech handed a termination letter to Leach's attorney, Ted Liggett, minutes before a court hearing on the coach's suspension.  Leach had been hoping to be reinstated before Saturday's Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.  Liggett says "the fight has just begun" and that Leach's side has evidence showing the suspension was without merit.  Leach was suspended Monday as the school investigated his treatment of receiver Adam James, a sophomore receiver who alleged Leach twice confined him to small, dark spaces while the team practiced. James is the son of former NFL player and ESPN analyst Craig James.
