Mike Leach has been on a crusade in the past six months to get the money that he feels he is contractually obligated to. He has even talked about it in the middle of Washington State press conferences.
Here's the tweet:
As of now, there are no details as to where the rally is being held besides "near Red Raider Stadium." We will update as soon as there are more details to give.
Coach Leach won't be in Lubbock...probably. His current team, the Washington State Cougars, have a game against the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday night, while the Red Raiders take on Iowa State at 11 a.m. Leach did say that "friends" would be leading the rally, but he approves of it happening.
Coach Leach then spent the rest of the night retweeting support of the rally:
