Leach To Washington State, Off The Market

Anyone dreaming of Mike Leach landing in the SEC this year (Ole Miss fans) or perhaps next (Kentucky, Tennessee fans) can stop dreaming.  The pirate has landed about as far from his South Florida home as imaginable.

Leach has been hired by Washington State, which might just be the best place for him.  If there’s a school as isolated and off-the-beaten path as Texas Tech, it’s Wazzu.  In addition, the Cougars have a long history of producing star college quarterbacks… from Jack Thompson to Drew Bledsoe to Ryan Leaf.  (We said star college quarterbacks.)

In the wide open Pac-12, Leach could prosper as he did in Lubbock.  And if he does — and does so more than Ole Miss — it’s likely the folks in Oxford won’t let their administration forget that they could have had him.

i dont think he would have succeeded in SEC, not because of his offense that wouldve been fine. Its because of his 0 tolerance on discipline. He throws kids off the team for ONE failed drug test. I am sure all of us fans can agree that does not lead to success in the SEC.

I'm not sure anybody can be dominant at Washington State.
I'm also not surprised he ended up in a conference without an ESPN deal.

Wish Mr. Leach the best; will be fun to see him turn that program around

This is pretty much a perfect move for both parties. I don't think Leach would fit in the SEC anyway.

Same here. SEC football would expose him, but he'll be dominant in the Pac-12.
