Mike Leach returns Saturday for encore book signing

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach will return for a second book signing at Barnes & Noble Booksellers Saturday at noon. Leach set a local signing record at Barne's and Noble when he last appeared on July 19, and the store sold out of his book, Swing Your Sword. The store says they have plenty of books available this time.

Doors open at 9 a.m. and no other memorabilia will be signed.

Swing Your Sword offers up details of what he says was happening behind the scenes around the time he was fired from the University. The university fired Leach in December 2009 amid claims that he mistreated the player, Adam James. Leach claims a public relations firm hired by Craig James, the player's father and an ESPN analyst, was used by the university to "smear" his name.
