LUBBOCK, Texas -- The lawyer for Mike Leach says the suspended Texas Tech coach did nothing wrong in how he treated a player with a "mild" concussion.
Ted Liggett says that keeping receiver Adam James inside during
practice due to the injury was better for the player than letting
him remain outside.
University officials suspended Leach on Monday while the school
investigates complaints from James and his family about how the
player was treated.
A person close to James with direct knowledge of the situation
contends the player was twice forced to stand in a small, dark
place for hours while the team practiced. The person spoke to The
Associated Press on the condition on anonymity because of the
Liggett says he has a letter from the doctor who examined Adams
that supports Leach's actions.
