Ryan Leaf, one of the most spectacular NFL busts of all time, valiantly made his way back into football as the quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M. Only that’s gone into the shitter now, too, as he’s been placed on administrative leave.
Athletics director Michael McBroom said Wednesday that he met with Leaf on Sunday to “go through some options, and we agreed that a leave is the best option.” He said he could not comment on what prompted the decision and said he would not speculate on when or whether Leaf would return.
An ESPN story cites a source that claims Leaf asked a player for a painkiller, although I don’t see why that would be a big deal unless the painkiller in question is brown tar heroin. I’ll be honest, the only reason I’m writing this post is to include the smaller picture of Leaf here on the right that Vince from FilmDrunksent me. It’s like he’s doing a bad impression of Mickey Rooney’s bad impression of Asian people. “Miss Gorightry!”
In a related racially insensitive name-butchering, “Lion Reef” sounds like a pretty cool place to visit. Who wouldn’t enjoy a scuba safari?
