STARKVILLE, Mississippi (AP) — Mississippi state coach Mike Leach was rushed to a hospital Sunday after an issue the university described as a “personal health problem” developed at his home in Starkville.

Leach, 61, was taken by ambulance to the University of Mississippi Medical Center at Jackson, about 125 miles from the state of Mississippi, the university said in a statement.

The school said it would have no further comment on Leach’s condition, adding “the university’s thoughts and prayers are with Mike and (wife) Sharon and their family.”

Defensive coordinator Zach Arnett has been put in charge of the football team preparing for an appearance in the ReliaQuest Bowl against Illinois on Jan. 1 in Tampa, Fla. by Mississippi State President Mark Keenum and interim athletic director Bracky Brett.

Leach is in his third season at Mississippi State with a 19-17 record. Towards the end of the season, he admitted to struggling with some unspecified health issues that caused a persistent cough.

Leach, known for his prolific air raid offenses, is 158-107 in 21 seasons as a head coach at Texas Tech, Washington State and Mississippi State.
