LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

78% of Texas Tech students and alumni think Mike Leach should not have been fired.

This from a survey by Nasica Consulting, a Dallas-based research firm that conducted face-to-face, on-campus interviews with 354 Texas Tech students and alumni the weekend of the Texas Tech/Texas State football game, Sept. 2 - 3, 2011.  

The surveys are part of a book called "Double T Double Cross" published by Scottsdale Book Publishing.

A large mobile billboard and video screen are traveling around the Texas Tech campus and surrounding neighborhoods showing two new videos and touting the results of the survey of Red Raider fans.

According to their findings:
 
• 78% of Texas Tech students and alumni believe that Mike Leach should not have been fired as the Texas Tech football coach.

• 67.5% believe that Chancellor Kent Hance mishandled the situation and his actions damaged the reputation of Texas Tech.

• 77% believe Craig James used his position and influence as an ESPN announcer to have Mike Leach fired because he would not give Adam James more playing time.

• 82% have a favorable opinion of Mike Leach. 9% have an unfavorable opinion.

• 72% have an unfavorable opinion of Craig James. 10% have a favorable opinion.

"Double T Double Cross" will be released in November 2011.  For more information, visit www.DoubleTDoubleCross.com.
