Leach Says No To Washington, Auburn Still In Play

We have new developments in the story of Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach. 

Thursday, NewsChannel 11 learned that Leach has taken his name out of the running to coach at the University of Washington. It was well publicized nationwide that Washington was courting Leach. 

But there's more. According to credible sources including the New York Times, Auburn University is now interested in Leach. However, Auburn's athletic director denies that Leach has been contacted to replace the school's outgoing coach. He didn't rule out Leach for future consideration. 

Meanwhile an Internet poll of Auburn fans shows Leach would be their second choice behind Will Muschamp, who's in line to someday succeed Mack Brown at Texas.
