Perhaps Kevin Anderson Knew More Then He Let On—Texas Tech Accused of Major Violations Under Regime of Mike Leach

Maybe our Athletic Director stayed as far away from Mike Leach as he could. With any knowledge of these violations, no Maryland fan would have been so anxious to sign the controversial Coach to any contract. Here is part of the story from “The NCAA put Texas Tech on two years of probation Friday for a series of recruiting violations, saying 16 coaches or assistants sent nearly 1,000 impermissible text messages to football, softball and golf prospects.The NCAA said the school discovered the violations and reported them. It did not add punishments beyond the school’s self-imposed probation, recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions.

The football violations occurred between August 2007 and February 2009 under former coach Mike Leach, the NCAA said. Members of the football staff sent 234 text messages to 45 recruits, with Leach sending nine of them, according to the report compiled by the Division I Committee on Infractions. Leach, fired in December 2009 amid allegations he mistreated a player suffering from a concussion, told The Associated Press the football program “fully cooperated” with the inquiry. After signing day in one of the years involved in the infractions, coaches were allowed to call, he said.
