Arguably, one of the most innovative coaches in the country, Mike Leach is one of the better-educated ones, too. He holds both a law degree and a Sports Science Master's degree.
At Texas Tech (2000-9), Leach became their winningest coach ever (regular and post-season). In leading Tech's Red Raiders to 84 wins during his tenure, he became the only coach in school history to take his teams to a bowl game every year.
Leach helped guide the Red Raiders to four-straight NCAA passing titles from 2001-2004 and again in 2007 & 2008, as well as three-consecutive total offense titles (2001-2003). Leach's offense produced school records in nearly every passing category in 2000, and he surpassed those numbers with each new season. His teams combined for over 151 team and individual records at Tech.
Prior to Texas Tech, Leach, in just one season at Oklahoma, he directed a Sooner offense that went from nearly the worst in the Big 12 to nearly the best.
