Mike leach is a coach who knows his X's and O's. Leach is a perfect fit for Arizona. Leach did want a job that would be lesser know and not as promising as other jobs. People think he will goto New Mexico....FALSE! Leach will end up at a BCS school who will embrace his pirate side and appreciate his quirky ways. In Texas those things bothered everyone but in Arizona they will be welcomed.
Leach has been a winner where ever he went. Let us look over his Texas Tech career. Tech is a hard program to win at since they have to compete with Texas and Oklahoma on a regular basis. Just to win 7 games at Tech should be praised.
Here is Leach's record's:
Texas Tech Red Raiders (Big 12 Conference) (2000-2009) 2000 Texas Tech 7-6 3-5 4th (South) L galleryfurniture.com 2001 Texas Tech 7-5 4-4 T-3rd (South) L Alamo 2002 Texas Tech 9-5 5-3 T-2nd (South) W Tangerine 2003 Texas Tech 8-5 4-4 4th (South) W Houston 2004 Texas Tech 8-4 5-3 T-3rd (South) W Holiday 17 18 2005 Texas Tech 9-3 6-2 T-2nd (South) L Cotton 19 20 2006 Texas Tech 8-5 4-4 4th (South) W Insight 2007 Texas Tech 9-4 4-4 T-3rd (South) W Gator 23 22 2008 Texas Tech 11-2 7-1 T-1st (South) L Cotton 12 12 2009 Texas Tech 8-4 5-3 3rd (South) Invited to Alamo* 23 21
There are some wins vs Texas and Oklahoma amongst those seasons. He put it together and did it with the recruits of Texas nobody wanted.
If Arizona hired Leach, then he would be clicking. The PAC-12 South is a mess and if Arizona had an offense to compete, then the Championship game would be in reach.
Leach could have Arizona clicking and easily pick up wins vs Utah, Colorado, and UCLA... They would be competitive vs USC and Arizona State. Leach will be able to dip into California and back into Texas for some recruits to get the program back on the map!
Arizona has just been ran off the field this season they were so bad. Leach would help them change all that. Sure Arizona has had some good years under Stoops but not enough!
Arizona is a great school and would be a great fit. I will campaign for Leach as long as I have to but whoever gets him will be a happy camper!
