The wrongful termination suit of former Texas Tech football head coach Mike Leach was thrown out of the 7th Court of Appeals.

"We have felt all along that we would win, and we did win," Tech attorney Dickey Grigg said in a statement e-mailed Friday morning. "As we’ve maintained all along, the facts and the law were clear, and the Court of Appeals agreed. The breach of contract claim was properly dismissed, as were all other monetary claims."

Leach brought the suit after her was fired in December of 2009. He can, and likely will, appeal to a higher court.
