Leach denies any cussing at Chancellor prior to being fired

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11 continues to dig deeper for answers into the firing of Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach. 

As reported first at KCBD.com last Thursday, three Regents accused Leach of being "profane and defiant".  NewsChannel 11 has looked into this allegation of profanity and Chancellor Kent Hance would not specifically confirm or deny the quote that NewsChannel 11 heard.  Instead, Hance says, "I'd rather not get into that but it was a pretty good cussin' I received from an employee I was trying to help."

Mike Leach and his attorney Ted Liggett categorically deny that Leach ever cussed to the Chancellor.  Liggett also says Leach never used profanity when dealing with the Texas Tech administration.  Liggett goes on to say the Chancellor's refusal to confirm specific cuss words on the record is proof that it never took place.
