Texas Tech has fired head coach Kliff Kingsbury after his third consecutive losing season. It is the latest setback for a football program that has suffered since the firing of Coach Mike Leach nine years ago.
Tech needs a fresh start. That must include finally paying Mike Leach what the school owes him and burying the hatchet. Leach says he is ready to shake hands once he gets the 2.5 million dollars he is owed, plus interest.
It is also time to tell the truth to Red Raider fans.
“Maybe some Red Raider fans didn’t notice, but I tried to warn you. This collapse, this five-game losing streak came as Texas Tech decided to spend money to fight a judge’s ruling in the Mike Leach case, rather than simply showing Red Raiders the whole truth,” says Wayne Dolcefino, President of Dolcefino Consulting.
Texas Tech is trying to get an appeals court to protect them from showing fans the records because it will prove Mike Leach was set up and cheated.
“We already have proven Tech lied to fans when they promised a thorough investigation of Coach Leach,” says Dolcefino.
Nine years later the university continues to fight to hide the conspiracy now unfolding between former Chancellor Kent Hance and a few powerful regents to fire the winningest coach in school history.
“It is time to end the secrecy and pay the man. It is time to end the curse of the pirate,” says Dolcefino. “I have repeatedly warned Tech. The fans deserve a fresh start.”
