By Sid Salter and Brandon Langlois MSU President Mark Keenum with Head Coach Mike Leach on his first day on the job in 2020.
I always liked Mike Leach. He was a Republican which is rare in sportsball world. However I found him to be genuinely interesting and not just a single minded football coach like most in the sports world are. He was obsessed with pirate history, loved to talk about wine, lived in Europe for awhile. When you would hear an interview with him it was only about 30% and the rest was whatever he was interested in at the time.
He was vaxxed.
