Rich Rodriguez has a story about Mike Leach and a speedo (Video)

Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez is going to give you a mental image that you may never be able to erase from your brain.

Rodriguez was on the Pac-12 Network during media days on Friday and relayed a story of watching Mike Leach swimming. We won't spoil it, because it fits the caricature that the Washington State coach can be at times.

We're anxiously awaiting Leach's version of the story. And yes, we wonder what the reactions of Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden were to seeing Leach come out of the lagoon.

It's been a great week for anecdotes about the quirky coach. If you're familiar with him, you know he's a big fan of pirates. He was at ESPN earlier in the week and saw an employee with an eye patch. You can guess what reference he made.

Leach knows more than just pirates and football too. He's authored a book about Geronimo.
