A $500,000-per-year pay raise recently awarded Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville through 2015 has angered some university faculty members, who have been asked to take a pay freeze in 2011.
Attorneys for fired football coach Mike Leach argued before a three-judge panel Thursday that Texas Tech's behavior surrounding his departure means it can't claim immunity from his wrongful termination lawsuit.
"Obviously, some of our coaches and former coaches made mistakes, but we have a strong monitoring system in place and coaches who believe in doing the right thing," athletic director Gerald Myers said.
