“One of the biggest misconceptions about Coach’s offense is that it’s gimmicky or we’re tricking people. We don’t change it from week to week. We line up and we out-execute people. We line up in basic formations and out-execute them. We don’t motion people. We try to put people in binds. We try to flood a zone. Or we try to beat people in man-to-man. We do throw it more than other people, and people try and make it like that’s a gimmick. It’s just that instead of running the ball, we throw short passes.
“His (Leach’s) whole deal is to out-leverage people. Take what people give you and attack with leverage, going where they’re not. Attack them where they’re weak. Make them defend the whole field. He analyzes everything. He never gets emotional about it. He looks at football from an outside source just watching the game, calling what he thinks he needs to do. He never acts on impulses.” –Graham Harrell, Texas Tech QB 2005-08
