It has not been a good week for former Texas Tech head football coach Mike Leach, as he was fired on Wednesday amid reports that he mistreated one of his players.  In the wake of the scandal, Leach has retreated to the great ski town of Crested Butte over the holiday.  Last night, he spoke out publicly for the first time on ESPN from the ski town, explaining his side of the situation that relates to Adam James, a sophomore on the team and son of ESPN college football analyst Craig James.  Leach plans on filing a lawsuit against Texas Tech in response to his termination.
