If you knew nothing about Leach and his boss, Texas Tech AD Gerald Myers, you'd conclude that there is friction in the relationship -- rather quickly -- simply by following this contract saga the last two years. Here's more background: A close friend of Leach told me a story last fall that sums up the situation. When Bob Knight arrived at Tech in 2001 to coach basketball, Myers gave Knight Leach's university parking spot. Even though Leach was given another spot in the same lot, the move didn't sit well. For the rest of the semester, Leach parked in a commuter lot and walked to work.I honestly have no idea whether this is true or not, but frankly, considering Leach's well known exploits as a Pirate enthusiast, amatuer weatherman, and just altogether great communicator, I would not doubt Hayes for a second.
