Former Texas Tech Football Head Coach Mike Leach was posthumously inducted into the Texas Tech Hall of Honor in September 2023. Now another honor for Texas Tech's winningest coach, as he will be inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.

According to a press release from Texas Tech Athletics, Leach was named as an honoree for the 2024 Texas Sports Hall of Fame and is one of nine inductees for the 2024 class. Over 10 seasons, Leach rang up a record of 84-43 while making Texas Tech a household name in college football.
