Mike Leach is one of only two active CFB coaches to have won coach of the year in two different Power 5 conferences. 

Think his offensive strategy won't succeed in the SEC? As Kentucky's OC, Leach's offense set 4 NCAA, 42 SEC, and 116 school records.

10 consecutive winning seasons
8 consecutive seasons with at least 8 wins
4 seasons with at least 9 wins
1 season with 11 wins

5 bowl wins (most by any individual coach in the history of the program)

53–11 record at Jones AT&T Stadium, home of the Texas Tech Red Raider football team
