Rest in peace, Mike Leach.

The accomplished college football coach, who won 158 games during head coaching tenures at Texas Tech, Washington State and Mississippi State, passed away at the age of 61 on Monday after suffering a massive heart attack on Saturday at his home in Starkville, Mississippi.

Leach had just led Mississippi State to an 8-4 record and was preparing his team for the ReliaQuest Bowl in Tampa against Illinois on Jan. 2.

While Leach was a successful coach on the field, most will remember his legendary commentary and sound bytes off of it about a variety of life issues.

They were often random but absolutely hilarious, and while Leach may have passed away, his witty commentary will live on forever.
