Who will coach Texas Tech in the Alamo Bowl may be decided in a Lubbock court Wednesday morning.
Mike Leach, suspended this week by the university, is asking for a temporary restraining order that would allow him to coach the Red Raiders against Michigan State on Saturday.
In an affidavit included in the court filing Tuesday, Leach said he “would never intentionally harm or endanger a player” and that he has been “forced into this situation without being afforded any process.” He also said “absolutely” no evidence had been given to him that showed he had violated any university rules or standards.
University officials suspended Leach on Monday while the school investigates a complaint from receiver Adam James and his family regarding a concussion. James is the son of former NFL player Craig James, now an analyst for ESPN.
