E88: Mike Leach – Talking Trump, PC Culture, and Price is Right Coin Tosses



This is the second talk with Mike. We spoke on Wednesday November 9th after Donald J. Trump became President-Elect and discuss that outcome and some of the issues surrounding it. We also cover the story behind the playing of the Price is Right song during coin tosses among many other topics. It’s always great getting a chance to talk with Coach Leach. You can see our last chat back on episode 75. He’s the head coach of the Washington State Cougars football team who at the time of this recording have a record of 7-2, 6-0 in Pac-12. Mike was previously the head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders where he coached Kliff Kingsbury who was on episode 73. Mike is also an author and published the book Swing Your Sword: Leading the Charge in Football and Life with Bruce Feldman. He’s famous among fans for his fascination with 18th-century pirates such as Blackbeard and Calico Jack and he’s known for lecturing his players on the history of pirates while telling them before games to “swing their swords.”
