    I think he's a beauty.

    Never have to worry about "coach speak" and there's no denying that he has a great offensive mind as far as football goes.

    I like Leach. He’s a unique character in a good way, as opposed to say, Harbaugh, who is a tool.

    I was hoping he would end up in the SEC.

    Only for his personality, I'd prefer other SEC schools avoid hiring decent coaches.

    Kiffen is Ole Miss or Arky.

    Norvell or Odell for f$u (and it's almost certainly Norvell at this point.)

    I dig Leach, he makes me laugh! In a way his frank speech and offense reminds me of the OBC.

    The scuttlebutt in Oxford is that Ole Miss wants him but FSU is offering quite a lot of money. I think Ole Miss could keep pace up to $5 mil, but that’s the ceiling.

    That’s hearsay though - interesting and not unbelievable, but I wouldn’t wager a kid’s college fund on it.

    *Him being Norvell.

    I didn't know Robin Leach was still alive. Anyone remember the rich and famous?

    he just feels like a better fit for Ole Miss and money being comparable might be a better move

    Whomever takes the F$U job will have immediate high expectations from there fan base.
    If I were a head coach I would stay away from Tallycrappy and those 40,000 a game fan base :)

    Same, guy has two double digit win seasons in 17 years of coaching at little schools, average record of 8-5, what's to be afraid of?

    He has $17 million coming, all for failing spectacularly. He doesn’t need the money.

    Mike Leech would be crazy to leave Washington State (and yes, I know he has a reputation for crazy.) But as I have said before, he’s considered a god in Pullman, and winning 7 to 9 games a year there is considered a cause for celebration. He has that job for as long as he wants to coach. I’ve never had the impression that he’s motivated only by the money.

    He is also a bit late in his career to want to take on a rebuilding job at a high pressure school/conference.

    I’m glad he’s not coming to the SEC or to FSU. His teams never played much defense, but could occasionally outscore better opponents by getting them in a track meet. It’s entertaining, but I’m glad we won’t be facing him every year.
