Yet another member of the Texas Tech Board of Regents has asked a judge to dismiss former coach Mike Leach’s lawsuit against him as an individual.

This time, on Monday, lawyers for Board of Regents chairman Larry Anders filed documents that rebutted Leach’s attempt to hold individual college officials responsible for the school’s decision to fire him Dec. 30 last year.

The coach was let go two days after being suspended for allegations that he mistreated player Adam James, who Leach believed was faking a concussion. To punish the receiver, Leach had him stand in a dark shed during practice for several hours.

Leach’s lawsuit not only names several Regents and other university officials, but also Craig James, an ESPN football analyst who is also Adam’s father.
