Adam James, the son of former SMU and NFL running back Craig James, is the player who accused Texas Tech coach Mike Leach of mistreating him after an injury, leading to Leach's suspension.
Whatever Mike Leach said to Adam James is unknown right now.

Craig James now works as a football analyst for ESPN, and he and his wife released a statement through ESPN acknowledging that they brought a complaint because they were concerned about the way Leach treated their son after he was diagnosed with a concussion and an elevated heart rate.

"Mr. and Mrs. James took the step with great regret and after consideration and prayer to convey to the Texas Tech Administration that their son had been subjected to actions and treatment not consistent with common sense rules for safety and health," the statement said. "The James family believes this is a matter important to protect all the fine young men involved in Tech football and the University's reputation for developing and educating young men and women.

Adam James is a sophomore wide receiver. Prior to Monday's news, Craig James was scheduled to call Texas Tech's upcoming bowl game.

In February, Leach and Tech agreed to a five-year, $12.7 million deal that could keep him at the school through 2013.

The contract includes a $250,000 bonus if Leach and Tech win the national championship, a $75,000 bonus if Tech participates in a BCS Bowl and a $50,000 bonus if Leach is picked as national coach of the year

If Tech terminates the contract, the school must pay Leach $400,000 for each year remaining on the agreement. There is no buyout amount.
