Mike Leach is on board with the idea of working with Bill Moos again.

Leach’s Mississippi State program needs a new athletic director after John Cohen left MSU to take the same position at conference rival Auburn. When meeting with the media this week, Leach voiced support for Moos being his boss again.

Moos and Leach worked together at Washington State. Moos was WSU’s athletic director from 2010-to-2019, hiring Leach on Nov. 30, 2011. Most of Leach’s coaching tenure was with Moos as his athletic director.

Moos was hired as Nebraska’s athletic director on Oct. 15, 2017. He retired from the position in June of 2021.

Leach was Washington State’s coach through the 2019 season. He left for Mississippi State in 2020 and is now in his third season coaching the Bulldogs.

We’ll see if MSU listens to Leach’s advice and reaches out to Moos about coming to the SEC.
