CBSSports is reporting the full page age recently printed in the Lubbock-Avalanche Journal as news, not an opinion piece. Team Leach did not buy the full page ad covered in this link. This demonstrates that there are many others beside Team Leach who believe that how Mike Leach was fired, and the real reasons for it, is a stain that will remain on the Institution's reputation. It is a reflection of the ethics of a politician and DC lobbyist, not a trusted Institution of learning.
I am an administrator for Team Leach. We had nothing
to do with the newspaper ad (full page ad printed in the Lubbock
Avalache-Journal that requested Tech to pay Mike Leach for the 2009
season). It was posted on our page today and that's the first time any
of us were aware....except maybe those who still take the paper. If you
have any questions, you are welcome to contact me. We still have
substantial funds, but the only place they go is to scholarships.
Team Leach announces the award of a $10,000
scholarship to Keith Mauldin at Mike Leach's first "Swing Your Sword" book
signing in Lubbock at Barnes & Noble. Congratulations Keith!
The Team Leach - Mike Leach Scholarship Foundation is an effort by a group of Texas Tech football fans to honor former Texas Tech Head Football Coach Mike Leach.
Leach left Texas Tech University December 30, 2009 after 10 years as head coach. During his tenure, he not only brought success on the football field for Texas Tech, he also established the highest football graduation rate for public universities in the country.
This group of fans, students and alumni are not rich by any means. They do not have the ability to write $50,000 checks on a whim. They do not have the wherewithal to watch football games in skyboxes and go to games to be seen or socialize while looking down at the crowd below.
The people setting up this scholarship get up every day and go to work and try to make ends meet in a down economy. They are the people sitting below who buy the tickets, and have been doing so for decades. But still, they give what they can to make The Team Leach - Mike Leach Scholarship a success.
We ask you to help us in this effort. Your contribution, no matter the size, will be greatly appreciated.
You can give online securely by clicking on this link. All Major credit cards, checking accounts, and Paypal are accepted.
Or you can send your contribution to:
Team Leach - Mike Leach
3440 Bell Ste. 320
Amarillo, TX 79109
As a pledge from Team Leach, your identity will not be shared. You will not get the constant drip, drip, drip of phone calls, marketing mailers or slick emails asking for more contributions. Please give when you can, as much as you can. That’s all we ask.
Thank you for visiting our site. We hope you will decide to honor Coach Leach and his work at Texas Tech by helping us establish a fund that will help students for decades to come.
