Maryland Football Coach: Randy Edsall reportedly in; what's up with Mike Leach?
With numerous media outlets reporting that Randy Edsall is the choice to become the next coach at the University of Maryland, one has to wonder what happened with the apparent frontrunner during this whole process, Mike Leach?
Did Maryland get spooked by Leach's ugly exit from Texas Tech and subsequent lawsuit against both the school and ESPN?
Remember, Tech suspended Leach in late 2009, just days before the Alamo Bowl, over allegations that he mistreated Adam James, son of ESPN analyst Craig James. Leach was fired on Dec. 30, 2009; in November 2010, he filed a wrongful termination suit against Texas Tech, and a libel and defamation lawsuit against ESPN.
One of Leach's attorneys, Paul Dobrowski, told the Washington Post that no school, including Maryland, demanded that Leach drop his lawsuits against Texas Tech and ESPN as a prerequisite to hiring him as its head football coach. They attorney added that Leach would "absolutely not" drop either lawsuit, should he be hired by a school before the resolution of either case.
