Mike Leach Career Breakdown


They call him a Pirate, but perhaps a better name for him would be Mad Genius. Leach was on the ground floor of the Air Raid creation, even coming up with the name. He was at every stop with Hal Mumme from Iowa Wesleyan, Valdosta, to Kentucky. Then he went out on his own first as an Offensive Coordinator at Oklahoma then as the Head Coach at Texas Tech before leaving and eventually landing in the Palouse of Pullman, WA to coach the Washington State Cougars. The one thing that cannot be misunderstood about Leach is that he puts up numbers both on the scoreboards and in the Passing Yards Column. Leach has been a Two-Time National Coach of the Year while resetting the record books at every stop. Out of the 50 Most Productive Passing Seasons, Leach’s Quarterbacks have accounted for 11 of those seasons. 

This breakdown is a simple look into six of Leach’s most famous concepts within the Air Raid. Using film from Texas Tech & Washington State, we get a comprehensive insight into what has changed and what has stood the test of time. We hope you enjoy looking into the Pirate’s Air Raid Offensive Breakdown which includes:

-How the Air Raid Attacks Space & Grass

-Six intensive breakdowns of key concepts that created some of the most dynamic offenses in College Football History

-A look at how he has beaten National Powerhouses at unconventional locations

-QB Reads & Progressions for the Air Raid

-Several examples thru All-22 Film displaying this key concepts both at Texas Tech & WSU

Big Air Raid fan so I knew I had to get this course as soon as I saw it. Was not disappointed at all. Went over the scheme and then went over several in game examples from Leach's whole career.
