Top 10 Reasons Why Mike Leach was Fired

Over the last week or so we all have been bombarded by media coverage of the scandal in Lubbock, Texas with Mike Leach, Adam James and the Texas Tech administration. Leach has always been an odd fella and has a strange affection to pirates. Leach decided to use a bizarre tactic to get in the head of wide receiver Adam James and was called on it because it isn’t really common to lock people in sheds or electrical closets. In the end if he would have apologized it sounds like he would have kept his job, but Leach refused and thus he was fired as head football coach of the Red Raiders. Even though that is the story at a very high level we thought we would provide you the top 10 reasons why Mike Leach was fired.
