Mike Leach is reportedly the new football coach of the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

After early reports that he’d interviewed for the job, Pete Thamel reported Thursday afternoon that Leach will be the new coach of the Bulldogs. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Brett McMurphy also reported Leach, who was at Washington State this past season, would be taking over at MSU.

Below is a live look at me following this huge news.

Mike Leach and Lane Kiffin in the same conference and in the same state! I am so happy right now. I am so happy!

This morning, I said all I wanted was for Leach to go to Mississippi State. Here we are several hours later, and it’s happening.

I wish you could all see the smile on my face right now.

Guess who just became a huge Mississippi State Bulldogs fan? Me. I can’t wait to see what Leach does in the SEC.

Go, Leach, go!
