Below are my notes from former Texas Tech and current Washington State head football coach Mike Leach’s book Swing Your Sword. Leach, one of the progenitors of the “Air Raid” offense that spread through college football in the early 2000’s, is known as one of the most innovative and unique minds in football. I enjoyed Leach’s book and think it offers good thoughts on discipline, strategy, practice, and program building amongst other topics. For more on Leach’s coaching philosophy, check out this article from October 2014.
I’m always looking to study from football coaches. Below are my three favorite posts on PnP over the last year:
-Urban Meyer clinic notes
-How Mark Dantonio rebuilt Michigan State
-Pete Carroll’s quest to overcome Super Bowl loss
