Coach Mike Leach was finishing his third season in Starkville and 21st as a head coach. Forever a college football icon, he leaves an incredible legacy as a husband, father, friend and leader of young men. Tony Kurre interviewed Coach Leach weekly and here is one of the favorites recorded in October 2022.

"I have been a huge fan of Coach Leach since his days at Texas Tech. I became a bigger fan of his when I worked with Tony Kurre and Joshua C Klapow and Coach Leach would give us a weekly call. He literally would take our calls anywhere and at any time. We talked to him while he was getting ready for a football game at Washington State. We talked to him while he was on vacation in Croatia. He was a great man and an incredibly intelligent man. The world is a little dimmer now without him. Hail State and Swing Your Sword." - David Sears
