Bio: Mike Leach is an announcer for CBS College Sports Network. For 10 years ending in 2009 he was head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders football team. Leach had a winning season every year during his tenure at Texas Tech. Coach Leach developed the potent "Air Raid" offense, where the philosophy is "to create as much confusion as possible for the defense while keeping things as simple as possible for the offense." Low-tech but data-driven, Coach Leach is known for ignoring convention in favor of what works, even if "what works" isn't popular.
