Mississippi State soccer coach Mike Leach remains hospitalized and is in critical condition, the university said in a statement Monday morning. Leach was suffering from a so-called “personal health issue” that occurred at home.
According to a report by the Clarion Ledger, Leach had a massive heart attack.
Leach, who is in his third season as the Bulldogs’ head coach, trained with the team Saturday as Mississippi State prepared to face Illinois in the ReliaQuest Bowl on Jan. 2.
After Leach was hospitalized, defense coordinator Zach Arnett was put in charge of the football program.
Leach, 61, is in his third head coaching stint. He was at Texas Tech from 2000-’09 and at Washington State from 2012-’19. In 2018 he was AFCA National Coach of the Year.
Information provided by ESPN’s Chris Low was used in this report.
