Pac-12Mike Leach has been a Power 5 football head coach since 2000, with stops at Texas Tech, Washington State, and most recently Mississippi State—and he was one of a kind.

His personality and innovation made him an icon in College Football for the past two decades, and it won’t be the same without him.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I go through why the College Football loss is so heavily mourning the tragic loss of Mike Leach.

The show ends on an optimistic and more standard note, with Deion Sanders having landed his first notable commitment from the high school ranks.

I explain why Dylan Edwards could be the first in a line of successful recruits to make their way to Colorado.
