Maryland Football: Mike Leach is the leading candidate to replace Ralph Friedgen
Why Mike Leach?
Well, there are lots of reasons why Maryland is interested in Mike Leach replacing Ralph Friedgen as head football coach.
For one, Leach has plenty of head coaching experience after nine years at Texas Tech.
Two, he would be more than ready for the rigors -- and we use that term loosely -- of ACC football after having been through the annual wars of playing in the Big 12's South Division.
Three, maybe just as important, it's not what you know but who you know. Leach has a friendship with Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, a former Maryland football player who founded the apparel company and now tis on the school's board of trustees. Under Armour is also the official apparel supplier for Maryland sports.
Never underestimate the power of sneaker and apparel companies in this world when it comes to college athletics.
