What's with Coaches now adays....the player:
James is the son of former NFL player Craig James, now a television sports analyst for ESPN.
Defensive coordinator Ruffin McNeill will be the interim coach when Texas Tech plays Michigan State in the Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2.
School officials declined to identify the player, but James' family released a statement to the Associated Press saying it was Adam.
A person with direct knowledge of the complaints told the AP that James, while unable to practice with a concussion, twice was forced to stand in a small, dark place for hours while the team practiced.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the complaint.
James was injured Dec. 16 and the next day was diagnosed with a concussion by team doctors, the person said. As leaders at these major school's they must be much more aware of what the out come could be.....He must be dealt with, strongly.....but with a good warning and hit him in the pocket....But I think if this is his first problem at Texas Tech, then he should not be fired.... However, the University are under pressure from parents and fans.......If he is let off the hook, then other coaches will follow, soon or later... They had to let him go....
