The school also made an official announcement about the situation. After providing the information that Mike Leach was sent to the hospital, Mississippi State reveals their plans until he returns, per the school’s official website. “MSU President Mark E. Keenum and Interim MSU Athletics Director Bracky Brett have conferred, and the decision has been made to place MSU Defensive Coordinator Zach Arnett in charge of the MSU football team until Coach Leach returns.”
Until then, the Bulldogs will continue preparing for their bowl game and recruiting. Even so, everybody is concerned for Mike Leach. We just hope the Mississippi State head coach is okay.
Get well coach. National treasure.
