Washington State football coach Mike Leach is a national treasure.
So when he met with the media ahead of the Cougars’ Holiday Bowl matchup against the No. 18 Michigan State Spartans, you knew there would be a memorable moment from the head coach.
Well, he did not fail to deliver.
There was a fascinating and hilarious moment when Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio was answering a question and Leach showed no interest in what his coaching counterpart had to say. Instead, he was show his razor sharp focus on his cup of coffee.
Apparently Leach really loves his morning brews, but like any normal person, it can’t be too hot.
That’s why he spent the entirety of Dantonio’s answer tending to his cup’s temperature.

Mike Leach always delivers. But someone should tell him an ice cube will do the trick better and much faster next time.
Kickoff between the No. 21 Cougars and Michigan State at SDCCU Stadium in San Diego is set for 9:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
