A Mike Leach Halloween: evolution of the Grim Reaper

Mike Leach is perhaps one of the quirkiest football coaches in the college football world today. The uniqueness that he brings to the table is always… well, interesting, and can he tell some stories!

During Thursday’s media session the Washington State head coach was in an especially festive mood after talking about his team’s goals to just get better from day to day and to focus on themselves during this, their first bye week of the season.

Leach isn’t actually particularly worried about the Arizona State Sun Devils at this point as they are still a week away (by the way what a coincidence that it would be the Devils coming in on Halloween). He even went on to say that the Cougs looking to avenge the loss to ASU last season is “a ridiculous motivator. I think the motivation needs to be you play the very best that you can…”

Leach did however go into some savory detail with Halloween stories, particularly costume arrangements that he used as a kid, where he began :

“I had this whole sheet arrangement that would hang over the mask and the skull came out in such a way. Kind of a robe around, kind of tight and extremely creepy.” Always confident, he continued in a cautionary tone, “I’m glad I don’t have it on now because it’d scare the hell out of everybody in this room.”
