Mississippi State hires Mike Leach away from Washington St

Mike Leach headed to Mississippi State, reports say Report: WSU coach Mike Leach named head coach at Mississippi State
Linda Gilbert | 10 January, 2020, 00:39

At Washington State, Leach took over a program that had been mired in the Pac-12 basement and went to five straight bowl games, including a school-record 11 victories in 2018.

Leach becomes the second high-profile coach to head to the state this offseason.


Mike Leach is headed to the SEC.

"Mike Leach is a proven victor who has established a culture of excellence for almost two decades as a head coach", Cohen said in a statement.


The news comes just weeks after Leach's contract automatically rolled over, which would have extended him through the 2024 season with Washington State. "I loved Washington State, but I am excited for the next chapter in the SEC". He has an overall record of 139-90 in 18 seasons at WSU and Texas Tech.

In 2019, Moorhead led the team to a 6-7 season, which was capped off by a loss in the Music City Bowl. The Cougars have led the FBS in passing offense four times in the past seven seasons. But while the always blunt and often amusing coach joins Alabama's Nick Saban and LSU's Ed Orgeron in that category, perhaps the most entertaining aspect of this news involves the program's rivalry with Ole Miss, which recently hired Lane Kiffin. Feldman's source said Leach could not bypass the job "becuase of the added resources, a much deeper local recruiting pool and, because it was a shot to coach in the SEC". The hires should make for an entertaining Egg Bowl for the foreseeable future.


He described a locker room in which the walls, floor and ceiling were all concrete, and "there was no furniture, there was no benches, there was no lockers".
