Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville says they will use a tight end about 15 to 20 plays per game next season. Adam James and converted defensive end Ryan Haliburton have been working out at the position this spring.
ESPN ombudsman Don Ohlmeyer claims the network may not have been fair in its coverage of the Mike Leach / Adam James situation. "News decisions in these cases must not be resolved by asking 'What's permissible for the employee?' but rather 'What's fair to the audience?'" Ohlmeyer said.
Texas Tech has fired head coach Mike Leach. Leach was previously suspended for the treatment of wide receiver Adam James.
Texas Tech's Adam James is pushing projected starter Tramain Swindall at the H (slot) receiver.
