Mike Leach, the coach fired by Texas Tech after he dared attempt to discipline the son of ESPN talking head Craig James (and former player for one of the dirtiest programs in college football history), wants to get back to coaching.
Leach is currently hanging out in Key West, Fla., waiting for his court case against TTU to be resolved.
When that’s finished, he aims to be back on the sidelines.
The next school that needs a coach would be wise to hire him. Leach is a good coach and his players go to class and generally do the right thing. He’s not a “football is the end-all” guy, and he stresses other things besides the game.
The game needs more guys like him. Sometimes he’s brutally honest — maybe a little too honest (who can forget his “fat little girlfriends” quote) — but he’ll be a great hire for whoever takes the chance.
