Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach addressed a crowd of about 40 people early this afternoon
Leach didn't have much to say, but thanked everyone for their support.
"I want to thank everybody for showing up," Leach said. "Shoot, heard about it last night. I came in on a plane kind of late. I appreciate y'all showing up. We're going to have a great team this year. We're excited about spring football and we're excited about the players here, the coaches and just looking forward to a great season. The biggest thing that attracts our recruits here and attracts our players and makes it excited to coach here is you guys there in those stands. We're excited about being involved with you folks one game after the next. Thanks so much and I appreciate it."
Leach has until 5 p.m. today to sign Tech's latest contract extension offer
