Update on Mike Leach

Coach Leach went on a radio show called 3 guys in a garage this morning and went through what has become the standard update...wrote a best selling book, it sets the record straight, Texas Tech is wrong, Craig James hired a PR firm to smear Leach, etc...

But, Leach did offer the following when asked about how bad he wants to get back into coaching, "I'm looking forward to getting back...I mean this has been fun too, I guess the difference would be I have a lot of variety now. The one thing about football is you have kind of a narrow existence. And now I get to see and do all kinds of things...I never thought I'd get to do the best selling writer thing, to broadcast TV, to be on the radio, to travel a lot...I've gotten to go on movie sets...all the stuff that you'd kind of like to do, I've gotten to do a lot of it. But you know, the payoff as far as everybody pulling together and working together and the sense of accomplishment that you get when you win a football game you know I miss that and I don't know that the payoff equals that...I like the intensity, everybody pulling together, that goes with coaching football.

In short, Coach is ready to go..."Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting back."

We're all looking forward to have Coach Leach back on the field.
