Leach just needed a cup of simmering hot coffee.
The most entertaining coach in all of college football sat down to the left of Michigan State's Mark Dantonio, as the Spartans coach was addressing the media at a Holiday Bowl news conference.
KHQ and SWX personality Sam Adams caught the sequence on camera.
"Mike Leach cooling off his hot coffee while Mark Dantonio answers a question during the Holiday Bowl press conference is the best Mike Leach moment ever," Adams tweeted.
Dantonio was asked a question about his senior players in their last game at Michigan State. Leach repeatedly blew on his coffee throughout the entire Dantonio response.
"I think anytime you take your jersey off for the last time, or practice with your teammates, you start to go through emotions," Dantonio responded. "You've gotta get some closure. So we try to make that special for them at the end of practice a little bit and it becomes an emotional experience for some of our guys but you know those guys have been to a playoff game. They've had some great moments here. So we are just looking for another life moment for them."
Leach blew on his coffee at least seven times before putting the lid back on. Hopefully he didn't burn that silver tongue to he can keep providing some golden sound bites like he did earlier this season.
Leach also wrote an article for The Players' Tribune this week. That piece includes his thoughts on: having a raccoon as a pet, Hawaii as a vacation destination, the best sports movies, types of pizza crust and corruption within the legal profession.
"I'm a thin-crust pizza guy," Leach wrote. "I respect people who like thick crust, but in my view it's mostly bread. I like a lot of cheese topped with Canadian bacon, black olives and mushrooms."
Leach's Cougars face the Spartans at 9 p.m. Thursday in the Holiday Bowl at SDCCU Stadium in San Diego.
