If you’re an FBS head coach, now is one of the few relatively slow times on your schedule. Spring ball is done, but camp season is still off in the distance. Assistants are out recruiting, but the head men must stay off the road.
If you want to play in a golf tournament, now’s your time. If you want to hop on the radio and wax hypothetical, now’s your time.
And if you want to tag along on a government trip to Cambodia, now’s your time.
That’s how Mike Leach is spending his week, with photographic proof below.

According to the Spokane Spokesman-Review, Leach joined a group of Washington lawmakers for a trip to Cambodia, which included a visit and photo op with Prime Minister Hun Sen.
Wazzu spokesman Bill Martin noted that Leach paid his own way to get to Cambodia and back. (The envoy returned home Tuesday.)
“He’s someone who loves discovering new things. He loves to travel,” Martin told the paper.
I think we already know what the theme of Washington State’s 2018 season is going to be, and we all couldn’t be more excited for it.
Cambodia is fantastically interesting. Friendly people. Great interest in WSU higher ed. Everyone should visit. Pol Pol and Killing Fields sobering. Angor Wat next. Thank you Sen Baumgartner, Ericksen, Buys for invite on this Trade and Friendship trip to Cambodia and Taiwan. https://t.co/gpoTHXH9WR
