Craig James tells D Magazine: most Lubbockites support him over Leach

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - ESPN Sports Commentator Craig James says most people in Lubbock support him.  That's what he says according to an article in the Dallas-based D Magazine. 

Craig James admits he played a role in the firing of Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach in December 2009.  James has claimed on national television that Leach abused his son, Texas Tech football player Adam James.  Leach denies the allegation.

According to D Magazine, Craig James says, "Most people in Lubbock support my position. We did what any responsible parent would do. We did the right thing." 

James also says the Leach controversy won't hurt him politically.  It's been widely rumored that James might seek the U.S. Senate seat from which Kay Bailey Hutchison will soon retire. 

James is one of several defendants in a pair of lawsuits filed by Leach in Lubbock state-district court.
