A communications firm hired by former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach to investigate the details of his firing in 2009 has announced its plans to sue the university for withholding public records, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

Wayne Dolcefino, president of Houston-based Dolcefino Consulting, has accused Texas Tech of withholding documentation of communications regarding Leach’s contested dismissal, including emails and phone records, as well as confirmation of expenditures.

In a release, Dolcefino’s attorney, Julie Pettit of The Pettit Law Firm, stated, “The public — including students, alumni, and taxpaying citizens — have a legal right to see the emails and investigative notes surrounding Coach Leach’s improper termination.”
