Mike Leach Files Lawsuit Against Texas Tech, Claims Defamation

This was an inevitable end for the Texas Tech-Mike Leach kerfuffle, but still. Mike Leach officially announced that he will seek legal retribution against Texas Tech University. From the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal:

Attorneys for former Texas Tech head football coach Mike Leach filed documents Friday specifically claiming the university wrongfully terminated the coach without cause.

The document alleges the university breached its contract with Leach, defamed him and committed fraud by not honoring his employment contract.

This comes on the heels of motions that Leach’s legal team filed on Thursday, which petitioned the court for a speedy trial. This is going to be fun!
