LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Texas Tech coach Mike Leach has been suspended while the school investigates complaints from a player and his family about treatment after an injury.
The school said in a release Monday defensive coordinator Ruffin McNeil will be the interim coach and lead the team in the Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2 against Michigan State.
McNeil will remain in charge of the team until the investigation is complete.
The Red Raiders went 8-4 this season.
