Double T - Double Cross by Michael Lee Lanning

The Firing Of Coach Mike Leach:
The Backroom Deal That Deflated the Red Raider Nation.

Acclaimed author Michael Lee Lanning uncovers the backroom dealings that led to the firing of Coach Mike Leach and turned the Red Raider nation against the Texas Tech administration.

78 percent of all Texas Tech students and alumni believe Coach Mike Leach should not have been fired.

67.5 percent feel Chancellor Kent Hance and the Texas Tech administration badly mishandled the situation and never should have dismissed Coach Mike Leach.

72 percent have an unfavorable opinion of ESPN announcer Craig James.
Based on survey of Texas Tech students and alumni conducted September 2-3, 2011.

"I strongly urge you to not close this matter concerning Adam James ... I don't want to eliminate our ability to use this to our advantage should we determine to use it to terminate Leach."
--- Email from Regent Larry Anders to Chancellor Kent Hance, December 27, 2009

"Contract obligates TTU to pay 'completion bonuses' (800K in 2009 and 200K in 2010) only if he is head football coach at University as of December 31, 2009 ... but if we fired him on November 30, 2009, contract does not entitle him to receive the completion bonus."
--- Email from Regent Jerry Turner to Regents John Scovell and Larry Anders, February 20, 2009

As a Texas Tech grad who was a supporter of Leach I was very interested in this book. I felt Lemming did a good job researching the events surrounding Leach's dismissal and simply presenting the facts he found from a variety of sources. I was upset with Texas Tech when Leach was fired, and I feel my anger is justified after reading this book. I removed my Tech decals from my vehicle and stopped sending money and going to games. This book leads me to believe I will never support Tech the same way I did before. Double T Double Cross really opens your eyes to the politics and good-ole boy system driving Texas Tech football.

This is a great example of abuse of power.

This story confirmed what I believed happened to Mike Leach. For all Texas Tech fans, this is a must read. It proves that Lubbock is still a "good-ole boy system". The author provides facts and backs up his research.

Having known the players in this saga and the peculiar brand of politics that exists at Texas Tech University, this book uncovers few additional surprises yet from my standpoint displays high accuracy. Truth is stranger than fiction especially in the land of Texas Tech.
