“How is this guy gonna work out in West Texas?”

Bruce Feldman’s oral history of Mike Leach’s first staff and team at Texas Tech ($$) is a must read.

Amazing factoid:  “Combined with the Red Raider players on that squad, eight people from that team are or were head coaches of FBS programs, eight more have been coordinators at the FBS level, and in all, 23 have been college or NFL coaches.”

Whether or not you’re impressed with Leach’s record, you can’t deny his impact on the game of football.

    Some people are going to call a coach a dipshit until he wins his third national title and there’s nothing you or I can do about it.

      He’s not a dipshit. Mike Leach is a weirdo. That’s the reason he is coaching in the Siberia of P5 football. The only way Mike Leach would be associated with a national championship team is if Saban someday offers him an analyst spot.

    My standing policy to read every Athletic article that even indirectly references Mike Leach continues. I’m like a moth to a flame on that stuff.

      Yep, same here. Did you read the article a few weeks back from his former QBs talking about their QB meetings with Leach? Hilarious and classic Leach.

        haha. of course. There was a subtle reference to the QB mindset from this most recent one. Kingsbury talking about knowing not to ask questions. made me laugh.
