Could Dallas PR firm contributed to Leach's firing?

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An NBC Sports article is asking if a public relations firm had something to do with the firing of Mike Leach.  The firm in question is the same firm that had a hand in the infamous Swiftboat Veterans Campaign against John Kerry during the 2004 Presidential race.

It was a week ago Friday that Leach was fired as head coach over allegations he mistreated wide receiver Adam James, the son of ESPN Commentator Craig James. Thursday, it was reported that Craig James announced his interest in running for Kay Bailey Hutchison's Senate seat.

NBC Sports says Dallas based PR firm Spaeth Communications helped Craig in releasing his senate announcement. The article goes on to say that Spaeth Communications also was reportedly involved in circulating the video of Adam James in the alleged electrical closet at Texas Tech.
