Texas Tech turns down Leach's settlement offer

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech has rejected an offer by former Red Raiders football coach Mike Leach to settle his lawsuit against the school.
Leach, now the head coach at Washington State, informed Tech in a Nov. 28 letter that he'd "settle and move on" if he was paid what he was due for his last season. He didn't specify an amount.
The letter was written two days before WSU hired Leach and was released Friday by one of his attorneys.
Texas Tech attorney Dicky Grigg said the offer was unanimously rejected by Tech regents because the university believes Leach has been paid what he was owed.
Leach was fired amid claims that he mistreated receiver Adam James, son of former ESPN commentator and current U.S. Senate candidate Craig James.
