Leach, 61, passed away last Monday night at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson after complications stemming from a heart condition. He was widely considered one of the most successful coaches in the history of college football.
Prior to his time in Starkville, where he led the Bulldogs to three consecutive bowl game appearances from 2020-2022, Leach served as head coach at Texas Tech (2000-2009) and Washington State (2012-2019). The two-time national coach of the year had an overall record of 158-107, missed the postseason just twice in 21 years, and broke program records at all three schools.
