Donald Trump endorses Mike Leach

By staff

Donald Trump wants former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach to be the next coach at Miami. Trump sent Miami president Donna Shalala a note this week, written in black marker on the front page of Sunday's Palm Beach Post, across a story about Miami firing coach Randy Shannon.

In the process, he surely fired up a few Texas Tech fans, too.

"You made a big mistake when you did not take my advice and hire Mike Leach of Texas Tech -- Look what happened to them since he left -- (they knew he was leaving) -- Jealous!," Trump wrote. "Hire Coach Leach and you will be #1 ... and you can get him for the right price."

Here's a photo of Trump's note.

Is Leach the right fit for the Canes?
