Firing Mike Leach Could Cost Texas Tech $1.6 Million

Amid the news that Mike Leach filed an injunction against Texas Tech and that a court date has been set for Wednesday morning are whispers that the school may just go ahead and fire him before this thing even reaches the court. According to Chris Brown, editor of Smart Football, if the university opts to fire him without cause, it'll cost 'em.

FYI if Tech fires Leach w/o cause they owe him $400k for every remaining contract year, deliverable as a lump sum. 4 yrs left, so $1.6m
