Leach: ‘Money’s never been the issue’

LUBBOCK, Texas — Contentious negotiations on a new contract for Texas Tech coach Mike Leach have stalled largely on questions of what happens if he tries to leave the Red Raiders.

Leach and his agents have taken issue with termination and buyout clauses and a provision that would trigger the coach’s firing and a $1.5 million penalty if he interviewed for another job without permission, according to documents released by the school Friday.
“It’s pretty much out of my hands. I’m just focused on coaching football,” Leach told The Associated Press late Friday.

In his current deal, which has two years remaining, Leach has no restrictions on interviewing elsewhere.
