Leach requests open Board of Regents meeting

Texas Tech's Mike Leach has formally requested that Friday's Board of Regents meeting that could determine his fate as football coach be made open during executive session and has asked to speak.

Leach is the only person in standing who could request that executive session be switched from private to public.

Leach told The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday night that he would be attending the meeting.

Leach and Tech officials haven't been able to agree on a contract extension after 10 months of negotiations. Tech's Board of Regents announced Tuesday a "special called teleconference meeting" at 2 p.m. Friday at the administration building in Lubbock.

The regents are scheduled to convene into open session before adjourning in executive session for a "discussion and consideration of matters ... including but not limited to the position of the football head coach."
