Mike Leach, the blunt, spearheading, and unfiltered school football trainer who upset the game with the Air Strike offense, has passed on the following confusion from a heart condition, Mississippi State said Tuesday. He was 61.
Leach, who was in his third season as lead trainer at Mississippi State, became sick Sunday at his home in Starkville, Mississippi. He was treated at a nearby clinic before being transported to the College of Mississippi Clinical Center in Jackson, around 120 miles (200 kilometers). He kicked the bucket Monday night.
"Mike was a giving and mindful spouse, father, and granddad. He had the option to partake in organ gift at UMMC as the last venture of a noble cause," the family said in an explanation given by Mississippi State. "We are upheld and inspired by the flood of affection and supplications from family, companions, Mississippi State College, the emergency clinic staff, and football fans all over the planet. Much thanks to you for partaking in the delight of our cherished spouse and father's life."
In 21 seasons as a lead trainer at Texas Tech, Washington State, and Mississippi State, Leach went 158-107.
Leach battled through a session with pneumonia late this season, hacking wildly on occasion during news gatherings; however, they appeared to be improving, as per the people who worked with him.
