Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is on the short list to replace Paul Wulff as Washington St. Cougars head coach, athletic director Bill Moos said during a press conference Tuesday afternoon. He said the list could include five to seven names, making one wonder just how short it really is, but still. Mike Leach! Somebody's talking about Mike Leach! Internet, right this way!
@BrianMFloyd Moos: "I know Mike Leach. Actually, Mike was here last spring conducting a clinic ... Pretty good record. I read his book"
@BrianMFloyd Moos says Mike Leach is on his short list
Admitting you've read Leach's book has to be some sort of blasphemy in the college football world, so Moos has already committed a gateway sin of sorts. Leach would be an interesting fit at Wazzu, a program that will usually need to outthink its opponents in order to consistently succeed. The Pac-12's scoreboards would also need some sort of upgrade if Leach starts playing Chip Kelly and Rich Rodriguez.
