I'm of the opinion that Texas Tech coach Mike Leach needs his own reality show. Mic him up and turn him loose. Just watching him interact with his wife and kids would be worth the price of admission.
The Big 12 coaches held their annual spring conference earlier this week, and Leach fielded the call while watching film with his staff. Dude can multi task. He said it reminded him of the the time he took a conference call while ordering in the drive thru at a fast food joint.
"One time I got in trouble for ordering lunch on one of these deals," Leach said. "I ordered chicken express one time, and that wasn’t a big hit."
I can't tell you how much that pwns.
And like all Leach interviews, this one has its' own pull quote.
Leach still calls his own plays. Some older coaches who used to call their own plays now have given the playcalling responsibilities to someone else on staff.
So why hasn't Leach?
"Because I’m younger than those guys," he said. " … I got into coaching to coach. Otherwise, you’re just a handshaker."
Are you listening, Fox?
