LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

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.

• 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.
