It might happen

A state representative from Lubbock alleges a colleague had financial reasons for filing a bill last week that would allow former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach to sue the state.

Freshman state Rep. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, told KFYO-AM of
Lubbock on Wednesday that Rep. Craig Eiland's reason's for filing
the bill "must be financial."

Perry didn't immediately return a call seeking comment or
clarification on what he meant.

A call to Eiland, D-Galveston, wasn't immediately returned.

The resolution would allow Leach's wrongful dismissal lawsuit
against the school to proceed. In the radio interview, Perry said
he doesn't think the bill will pass. 

The school fired Leach Dec. 30, 2009, two days after he was
suspended amid allegations that he mistreated a player with a
concussion. Leach has denied the claim.
