IMG Speakers Bureau News: Former NCAA Football Coach Mike Leach to Release Debut Book, Swing Your Sword

Mike Leach made his mark on the college football landscape by instituting a spread offense that few had ever seen before. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, however, because Leach himself is a coach unlike any other. Mike has an admitted fascination with 18th century pirates such as Blackbeard and Calico Jack, and has used them as inspiration for his players, telling his team to “swing their swords” in pregame speeches. On July 17th Coach Leach comes out with a new book, aptly titled Swing Your Sword.

As both Offensive Coordinator at Kentucky and as head coach at Texas Tech, Leach’s offenses broke record after record, and many people have said that his passing attack changed the game. Thus it must be high praise when Sports Illustrated’s Dan Jenkins raves, “Mike Leach has proved he can write a book as good as his passing schemes.” The book has something for everyone, from the biggest college football enthusiast to someone who does not follow the game, and can currently be pre-ordered on

Mike Leach, former head football coach of Texas Tech University, is available exclusively through IMG Speakers bureau for speaking engagements. Mike Leach is also available for corporate hospitality appearances, meet and greets, and much more.
