HCA: Saturday morning links

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

A brief Mike Leach profile and the Pac-12 wins the Directors Cup.

It's a quiet final Saturday of June and as a result we're going to keep things simple.

Football:

Sports Illustrated published a profile of Mike Leach on Friday. Nothing Earth shattering, but a good way to catch up if you haven't been paying attention for the last 18 months.

Washington State's Mike Leach has something to prove entering the 2013 season | Campus Union - SI.com
When Washington State athletic director Bill Moos brought in Mike Leach as the school’s new football coach in November 2011, Leach was expected to breathe life into a lagging Cougars’ squad. In 10 seasons at the helm at Texas Tech (2000-09), Leach engineered an attack that led the nation in passing offense six times and topped the country in total offense three times. But Leach didn’t simply put up big numbers; his teams found ways to win. Behind the Air Raid, Leach won at least seven games every year he was in Lubbock, reaching a bowl game in all 10 campaigns. He tallied an 84-43 overall record and was viewed as the spark needed to turn Washington State’s fortunes around.

WSU Athletics:

WSU senior Mallory Kent won the Washington Women's Amateur championship. She'll now attempt to qualify for the U.S. Women's Amateur.
