Texas Tech Fires Back

2 Jan

Texas Tech University has fired back at former Head Coach Mike Leach today by release 2 witness affidavits.

From TTU:

Statement from Texas Tech on Signed Witness Affidavits
Attached are two signed affidavits from principal witnesses involved in the Adam James investigation prompted by complaints from the James family that Adam was abused on two separate dates following the diagnoses of a concussion.

The accounts here are different from comments made by coach Leach in the media. These statements were made by Steve Pincock, head football trainer, on Dec. 21, 2009, and team physician Dr. Michael Phy on Dec. 22, 2009, to the investigative attorney. Also, in her interview with coach Leach on Dec. 21 he confirmed these accounts. Further, Leach mentioned the abusive language addressed to Adam James and said “if I didn’t say it I wish I had.”

After coach Leach’s conflicting recent media accounts of the treatment of James, the university asked witnesses to sign affidavits attesting to their original statements. These are those signed affidavits.

Here are the 2 affidavits:

    Do you think the reason these guys have changed their story and ran the other way is because they too are afraid to lose their jobs???

    No one with a brain will put any stake in these affadavits that were done after the fact on January 1st.

    Certainly does not sound much like the statement the trainer provided to Leach representatives that was released yesterday. Strong arm tactics?

    Leach still should not have been fired. James is a baby and the Hance/Myers/Sowell crew were looking for ANY excuse to get rid of Leach. The relationship between some Regents, boosters, and administrators ought to be investigated immediately. Why isn’t the A-J looking into this?

    Looks like Tech is scrambling to get stuff together. I’m curious as to why didn’t they have them signed during their supposed “investigation” … instead of the day after Leach publicly shames Tech Administrators on national television?? That would have made more sense and wouldn’t have been as obvious that this is a complete sham!!
