Coach Leach is suspended until further notice

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - According to a statement released from Texas Tech University, Texas Tech Football Coach Mike Leach has been suspended until further notice after a complaint from a player and his parents on his treatment of the player after an injury.

An investigation of the incident is underway. According to the statement from Tech, until the investigation is complete, Texas Tech University is suspending coach Leach from all duties as Head Football Coach effective immediately. The investigation into this matter will continue in a thorough and fair manner.

Coach Ruffin McNeill will assume duties as Interim Head Coach and will coach the team during the Alamo Bowl.

The decision to take these actions was made in consultation with the Texas Tech University president, and the Texas Tech University System chancellor, and Board of Regents chairman and vice chairman.
