Mike Leach Fired By Texas Tech; Confirmed By Attorney Ted Liggett

Texas Tech has fired head coach Mike Leach following this week’s controversy over his alleged mistreatment of wide receiver Adam James.

The firing has been confirmed by Leach's attorney, Ted Liggett, who was given a termination letter by Texas Tech before Wednesday's court hearing for an injunction against the university, which would allow Leach to coach the team's bowl game. The letter read that Leach was "terminated with cause effective immediately."
