Mike Leach Jumps on the "Craig James Killed 5 Hookers" Bandwagon

In case you were wondering, former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach isn't supporting the quixotic senate campaign of Houston native and former SMU star Craig James.

Proof is provided by Deadspin, which got this shot of an autograph Leach provided to a fan who bought his new book Swing Your Sword.

"To Mick -- CJK5H" is the inscription.

In case you're not up on your longshot Tea Party candidates, "CJK5H" refers to a Santorum-like googlebomb and it means "Craig James Killed 5 Hookers."

James, a former ESPN analyst, famously crossed (not swung) swords with Leach over the coach's treatment of his son on the Tech football team.
