Mike Leach was fired by Texas Tech over five years ago. He filed suit over that termination, saying it violated his contract. I previously wrote about his lawsuit here and here. He sued to force the state to honor its contract hiring him. But, his initial appeal was denied. And, now the Texas Supreme Court has also denied his appeal. See Fox Sports report.
Consider what the former Texas Tech Chancellor said about the firing of Coach Leach: “If you tell your boss to go f— themselves, then you will probably be dealing with your boss.” Kent Hance said he learned that in 3rd grade growing up in the Texas Panhandle. That does sound like good employer-employee advice. See Lubbock Avalanche-Journal news report. The administration asked Coach Leach to apologize to that student he punished. Coach Leach refused.
