Mike Leach spent some time Wednesday to participate in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session.
The Cougar head football coach just finished his second book Geronimo: Leadership Strategies of an American Warrior he co-authored with Buddy Levy, clinical associate professor of English at WSU.
Below is a sample of what Coach Leach had to say:
On recruiting to Pullman:
"It is very simple: we are a true college town in a true college setting. This is something that we nearly have a monopoly on in the Pac 12. We have just built the best Football Operations Building in the Pac 12 and we have quick, direct flights to many of the locations we recruit to. We are in a gorgeous setting with no freeways, in a place where a student-athlete can focus on his degree and football. This is led by our President, Elson S. Floyd who is celebrating his 7th anniversary as our College President, and our Athletic Director, Bill Moos who played here. Both of which talk to our recruits when they visit campus."
On who would play him if a movie was made about his life:
"Maybe John Cusack. I think we have some similar looks and mannerisms."
On if he had to fill his coaching staff with historical figures:
Head Coach: George Washington Offensive Coordinator: Geronimo Offensive Assistant: Tarzan Defensive Coordinator: Winston Churchill Defensive Assistant: Daniel Boone
