Mike Leach will teach an NFL coach a thing or two

Texas Tech coach Mike Leach gets a little testy when he’s asked about whether ex-Ennis and ex-Tech QB Graham Harrell can be taught to drop back and pass as opposed to taking snaps from his usual shot gun formation.

“You bring up easily the most pitiful NFL cop-out of all!” he hollered. “And you can send that message to the whole NFL. Any coach who has ever said or uttered those words or considers that a concern, here’s my message for them: How could you possibly look yourself in the mirror and consider yourself an NFL coach and not be able to teach a guy to run back three steps, five steps and seven steps? I can teach a child that!

“Any coach in the NFL who can’t do that ought to be fired!”

This got the pirate-lover’s entrepreneurial engine burning.

“I can do that,” Leach said. “I only need a three-hour window. I’ll have a great clinic for all the NFL coaches who are so horrible that they can’t teach a guy to take a snap under center and go backwards.”

There’s no telling where Harrell will go in the upcoming NFL draft, but hopefully someone won’t use his drop-back ability as a reason not to draft him.
