Mike Leach welcomes the opportunity to instill his football philosophy on a normal time frame.

That’s not saying the outspoken Mississippi State coach didn’t have an impact in his first season with the Bulldogs.

Leach’s high-octane Air Raid offense yielded immediate dividends with an opening-game upset of defending national champion LSU on the way to establishing 21 school passing and receiving records.

The transition was still rough with a 4-7 finish. Though Leach was able to end on a high note with consecutive wins to close the season.

MSU aims to build on that momentum in Leach’s second season.
