Mike Leach Sues ESPN, PR Firm: Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach has filed a new lawsuit against ESPN and a public relations firm hired by Craig James, alleging libel and slander. Leach was forced out at Tech after stories about making player Adam James, Craig's son, stand in a darkened shed while he was suffering the effects of a concussion.

Whatever happened to Adam James anyway? I assume he starts for TT now?

He's a backup:

Apparently in name only. No stats this year. Maybe he's injured again, or still stuck in the shed.

Makes me wonder, with Leach pressing these lawsuits, what are the chances of him landing a quality coaching job in the future. It seems to me that schools might be hesitant on considering Leach because in the back of ADs' minds, there will be the chance that if the Leach's and the school's relationship turns sour Leach will find a reason to sue.
