Here is the termination letter sent by Texas Tech President Guy Bailey to football coach Mike Leach today:
Joe Schad reports this afternoon on Twitter and ESPN-TV that contract settlement discussions are underway between Texas Tech and reps for Mike Leach. Schad also noted a 10-day “cure period” that Leach’s reps will claim will entitle the coach to an $800,000 “retention bonus” that is contractually due him tomorrow.
Bruce Feldman of ESPN reports that he spoke to Leach earlier today. Feldman said that the coach today, “realized Tech was just looking for a reason to get rid of him and that this is a relationship that couldn’t be salvaged.”
