Leach deposition slated for Friday

Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is scheduled to be deposed on Friday, answering questions from attorneys representing Texas Tech in Leach's lawsuit against the school.

Leach, who moved to Key West after the Red Raiders fired him, alleges libel, slander and breach of contract in his lawsuit, claiming Texas Tech fired him without cause.

The university fired Leach on Dec. 30, and Leach also alleges that an $800,000 bonus, which Leach would have earned on Dec. 31, also contributed to his firing. The move came two days after Leach was suspended amid allegations that he mistreated Texas Tech receiver Adam James, the son of ESPN analyst and former NFL player Craig James.
