Texas Tech to Mike Leach: ‘the courts decided this case years ago’

After a solid week of Mike Leach launching salvos at the Red Raiders, Texas Tech has finally responded.

Texas Tech sent a statement to Outside the Lines regarding Leach’s allegations that the school owes him nearly $2.5 million from the 2009 season.

Will McKay of RedRaiderSports.com tweeted out the statement.

Texas Tech’s statement is clear and to-the-point. The university is confident that Leach has no reasonable argument.

Leach, now at Washington State,  hired an investigation firm to help solidify his argument against Texas Tech. He’s also launched a website and encouraged supporters to host a protest in Lubbock. 

He coached at Texas Tech from 2000-2009 and compiled an 84-43 record. But in the 2009 season, allegations emerged that he mistreated a player with a concussion. Leach was fired before the Red Raiders played in that season’s Alamo Bowl.

Red Raiders fans doubtlessly want this matter behind them. But as long as Leach continues to press on, this saga seems like it will drag on into the foreseeable future.
