The college football world was shaken to its core last night when it was reported that legendary college football coach, and current head coach for Mississippi State Mike Leach, was taken to the hospital in “critical” condition.

The medical issue was initially unspecified, now confirmed to be a heart attack, but he had to be airlifted to the hospital, and Mississippi State beat reporter Robbie Faulk tweeted out:

“Mike Leach needs a miracle, folks. Continue to pray.”

Mississippi State also shared an update:

It doesn’t sound good at all, and we’re all hoping and praying that coach Leach, who is widely known as the first to use the “air raid” offense on the college football landscape, can pull through.

In the meantime, Mississippi State defensive coordinator Zach Arnett will take over head coaching duties in Leach’s absence, as the Bulldogs are getting ready to square off against Illinois in the ReliaQuest Bowl in Tampa on January 2nd, 2023.

With that being said, Leach has received an outpour of love and prayers from several big time head coaches and names within the football world, and it’s easy to see how well-liked and well-respected the man is.
