Mike Leach says he didn't abuse anyone
He has claimed he did not mistreat Adam James in any way, and in fact, only requested that the player be takens somewhere dark, in rder that the concussion not be aggravated, and after that direction to his staff, had no idea where Adam James was taken. He denied that James was, at any time, locked up.
Further, he has identified Adam James as somewhat of a prima-donna, expecting secial treatment because of his father's position at ESPN. Further, he stated that he was constantly subjected to the elder James' phone calls and "suggestions" as to who should start in games.
As is usually the case, I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in between, however, it doesn't much matter. His contract is quite clear, that he can be fired without just cause.
