Texas Tech's Leach Suspended For Alamo Bowl
Mike Leach has been suspended from all duties as head coach for the Red Raiders while an investigation is pending from a complaint filed by a player and his family. Ruffin McNeill, the defensive coordinator, will replace Leach this Saturday night in the Alamo bowl against Michigan State. No further information is known at this time as the university is declining comment, citing privacy concerns.
Leach and Texas Tech have seemingly had a strained relationship the last few years, with Leach's awkward courtship for the Auburn job last season and difficulty in signing a renewal of his contract earlier this year.
Maybe the powers to be in Lubbock are taking no chances in the post Mangino climate, since alledged abuses on players by the former Kansas coach came to light the past few weeks....
