UPDATED: Former head coach Mike Leach drops case against individuals in lawsuit against TTU

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Officials say former Texas Tech head football coach Mike Leach has dropped all legal action against the individuals named in his suit against the University.

That included Chancellor Kent Hance, President Guy Bailey and Athletic Director Gerald Myers, plus two members of the Board of Regents Larry Anders and Jerry Turner.

This does not mean he dropped his case against the university, just the individuals named in the lawsuit. "This is not a new development," says Leach's Attorney Ted Liggett.  "The parties entered into a 'Rule 11' agreement finalizing the judge's decision of several months ago that no action will be taken against the individuals.  However, Texas Tech and Craig James are still defendants."

Statement From Texas Tech Attorney Dicky Grigg Regarding Agreement to Drop Suits Against the Individuals

This wasn't a settlement, but a dismissal. Mike Leach's attorneys have dropped the lawsuits against Gerald Myers, Guy Bailey, Kent Hance and Regents Larry Anders and Jerry Turner, and have agreed to never sue these individuals again. Neither the individuals nor Texas Tech have or will pay Mike Leach any money for this dismissal.
