New Attempt to Keep Ice in Coliseum

Texas Tech Hockey may be one step closer to playing on home ice in the Hub City.

Texas Hockey Coach Paul Fioroni tells NewsChannel 11 he's currently working with his lawyers to try to use the original three year, $40,000/year contract they had with the city. Fioroni says only written approval was needed to renew that contract, he says the city received the request in writing and the city denied anyway.

Council member Linda DeLeon has this issue on the docket for next Thursday's council meeting. We'll continue to follow this developing story and bring you the latest.
