E75: Mike Leach – Opinions, Politics, and Swinging Your Sword

Mike Leach


Mike Leach is a very educated man with a lot of opinions on all things. We discuss some of those opinions on politics and football. He’s the head coach of the Washington State Cougars football team and 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.”
