It's been a saga of more than three years, but Mike Leach's lawsuit against Texas Tech looks to be nearly over. The final count in his wrongful termination suit against the university was dismissed by a judge on Tuesday.
State District Judge William Sowder told the school and Leach's attorney Monday that Texas Tech didn't violate the coach's due process rights when he was fired in December 2009.
Texas Tech spokesman Chris Cook says the school is pleased with the decision. Leach's attorney Ted Liggett tells the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that Leach is considering options that could include an appeal.
We'll see if anything comes of those appeals, but surely Texas Tech would love for this to be the last word on Leach's lawsuit.
