He wants Meyer to join him.“Urban, come help me teach a class next semester,” Leach tweeted.Urban, come help me teach a class next semester. Meyer unsure of what the future will bring https://t.co/TK3ngQVDuO via @YahooSports— Mike Leach (@Coach_Leach) December 5, 2018Will Meyer be joining him? It’d be pretty cool for Washington State students if that was the case.Meyer explained to Yahoo! Sports’ Pete Thamel why he admires Leach:Meyer went on to joke he wished he could be more like coaches who can separate winning and losing from their daily lives. “That’s why I admire coaches who can just move on,” he said. “Mike Leach is my hero. First of all, I love him. We’re great friends. But he’s my absolute hero.” Meyer defined the difference between he and Leach this way: “I’m paranoid about everything.”Those close to Meyer are genuinely curious how he’ll handle the transition from compulsive worker to retirement, the word both Meyer and Ohio State used in the press release. From his boss, Gene Smith, to his close friend and longtime strength coach, Mickey Marotti, there’s a fundamental concern of where that singular focus will be directed.More job offers are likely to come for Meyer, but he’s got at least one in the bank already.
