On behalf of Texas Tech University, let me make a few things clear. Texas Tech has paid Mike Leach all of the money that he’s owed under his contract. Yesterday, the judge threw out 10 of the 11 claims filed by Leach and we remain confident the university will ultimately prevail on the sole remaining cause of action. As we’ve said before, there is no merit to Leach’s lawsuit either factually or legally. The facts are clear –Mike Leach breached his contract and was terminated as a result of his irresponsible treatment of an injured student-athlete, his insubordination and his refusal to help resolve this issue.
