TTU Chancellor Kent Hance speaks on ESPN about Leach's termination

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - During the ESPN Half-Time Show on Wednesday night, Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance spoke about Leach's termination.

"I wanted to solve the problem, so did the Athletic Director and the President; but Mike was adamant.  He wasn't going to have anyone second guessing him, and it just went downhill.  We tried to talk some sense into him, but Mike is very hardheaded.  He didn't listen to anyone, and I'm sure he can't believe this has happened.  We can't believe this has happened.  But the only person responsible for Mike getting fired is Mike."

The Board of Regents Vice Chairman, Jerry Turner, says "other things came to light during the investigation," but did not elaborate.
