Thank you, Coach (Mike) Leach, for many years of exciting football games and great wins!

You were hired to win football games, not pander to narcissistic sports writers, commentators and know-it-all fans. Most of your critics don’t have enough coaching ability to get a Little League team out of the locker room with their clothes on, let alone coach a major college football team.

Maybe these critics would like to return to the days of Bill Doba and Paul Wolff, who were nice guys but couldn’t win.
