Texas Tech coach breaks arm in crash

October 9, 2007


— Texas Tech coach Mike Leach talks often about how players need to play through pain as the season wears on.

Now he'll have to walk his talk.

Leach said Monday he broke a bone in his right arm when he hit the pavement after falling from his bicycle on Friday.

Leach said he got a flat tire and tried to fill it with enough air to make it to his destination, but "it proceeded to run out of air. I took a routine turn, then went into a slide, so then it broke the arm."

Leach, who wore a wrap around his elbow area to his weekly gathering with the media Monday, had cuts and scratches on each palm and abrasions to his right hip and shoulder.
