Mike Leach’s Attorney Says Coach Did No Wrong

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 ongoing investigation.

Liggett says he has a letter from the doctor who examined Adams that supports Leach's actions.
