Aging Dad NB reacting to the death of Mike Leach wrote: Everyone remembers that Bum Phillips was funny and charismatic while most forget that he was a certified defensive genius that stands with anyone in the history of football. Hopefully, they don’t make that mistake with Mike Leach.
TfuckinHowell said, RIP Coach Mike Leach. True college football fans know how much he meant to the game and the impact he has had at all levels. We lost a great one 🙁
Tyler bakes wrote Weird to see so much praise for Mike Leach. I was a grad student at WSU when he started, and his staff regularly hassled instructors for making his players come to class. When his players got into a prominent bar fight, his team got the police to arrest the kid whose arm they broke.
Paul McCord said RIP Mike Leach. An excellent coaching mind and innovator. I had the pleasure of meeting him & chatting – I won’t ever forget it. The super guy whose intellect and passion are unsurpassed!
