It doesn't take much prodding to send Washington State coach Mike Leach off on a tangent. On Monday, he shared what a fantasy brawl between Pac-12 coaches would look like.

Mike Leach is not your typical college football head coach.

He’s actually not your typical coach in any sport. His unfiltered, “anything but football” stances on life, marriage and pirates has turned him into one of the more quotable coaches around. Yesterday, he added another one of his “musings” to the greatest hits collection.

When being asked about who would win in an all-out brawl between the Pac-12 head coaches, this is how he described it.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I know we&#39;ve all wondered it, but if there was an all out brawl among the Pac-12 football head coaches, who would be the last coach standing? Here&#39;s Mike Leach&#39;s take: <a href="https://t.co/CBguAAbn8r">pic.twitter.com/CBguAAbn8r</a></p>&mdash; Femi Abebefe (@SWXFemi) <a href="https://twitter.com/SWXFemi/status/1062162904672231424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

He picked Utah’s Kyle Wittingham and Arizona State’s Herm Edwards as coaches who would win the brawl for all; ironically, enough it may come down to those two teans in the Pac-12 South. It isn’t the first time Leach has gone off and said something.... interesting. Here’s some of his greatest hits.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I’d like to use this opportunity to honor a true American legend, Mr. Burt Reynolds.

And lastly, my personal favorite…That one time where most of the Pac-12 coaches were with their wives and well, Leach is holding a football.
