Late Sunday reports and rumblings arose that current Mississippi State coach and former Kentucky assistant Mike Leach was not doing well. Mississippi State University then released a report that confirmed Mike Leach suffered a ‘personal health issue at his home’ early on Sunday. This led to him being transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center. As for information regarding what is wrong with Coach Leach is limited, and no other comments have been made regarding his status.
Robbie Faulk, a reporter that covers Mississippi State for 247Sports and the Starkville Daily, reports that Mike Leach ‘needs a miracle’.
Mike Leach needs a miracle, folks. Continue to pray.
