Mississippi State head coach Mike Leach was rushed to the hospital this week. Prayers up was the call for college football fans as Leach had to be airlifted to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi.
The head coach was initially expected to be taken to Oktibbeha County Hospital in Starkville.
Mike Leach has a 19-17 record at Mississippi State. They were 4-7 in 2020 and improved to 7-6 in 2021 and 8-4 this season. The Bulldogs are scheduled to play Illinois in the ReliaQuest Bowl in a month’s time.
Until coach Leach is back, the university will name Zach Arnett as the interim coach. He is the defensive and linebackers coach and will take temporary charge of the post if all goes well.
