Former Players, Coaches Write In Support Of Leach, Current Players Not So Much

Further reaction to the firing of Mike Leach comes from former players and coaches in support of Leach, including this quote on Adam James from former Red Raider QB Graham Harrell:

"In the locker room and away from the facility, Adam used any opportunity he had to tell other players how he was being treated unfairly, how the coaches did not give him a fair chance and how we did not have to do everything the coaches told us because they had no option but to play some of us. When I heard these kinds of things I usually tried to put an end to them but Adam pretty consistently talked bad about the coaches or down played the importance of working hard, when he was off the field."

The support is not unanimous for Leach. From current defensive lineman Chris Perry, via ESPN:

"I have no complaints about this decision. He put Adam in a shed like an animal. Like an animal in a cage. … That was bull. … You call the players. We practiced hard this week. We have our pep back now. We had less stress this week. You know why? Because he’s gone."
