Former USF coach Jim Leavitt sat down with longtime WFLA news anchor Gayle Sierens for an interview that aired on Channel 8 on Monday night. The video is now available in two parts from TBO's Web site. Click here for Part 1, and click here for Part 2.
The interview seems to be mostly an attempt at image rehabilitation. It doesn't really break new ground, and obviously Leavitt isn't going to share any big details seeing as there's a wrongful termination lawsuit on the table.
We haven't weighed in on this whole situation so far, and it might stay that way for a little while. Personally I've moved on, and I'm beyond tired of the arguing in circles that's been done elsewhere on this topic. I don't even know how I'm going to deal with the trial, if it gets that far. It would be like an 8-year-old having to watch their parents testifying in divorce court and saying mean things about each other, without understanding why any of this is happening. No one wins.
