Mike Leach was hospitalized on Sunday after he reportedly suffered a massive heart attack.
Mississippi State first issued a statement revealing that Leach had a “personal health issue” at his home and was rushed to the hospital. On Monday, Ross Reily of the Mississippi Clarion Ledger was told by sources that Leach collapsed at his home in Starkville during a massive heart attack. He did not receive medical attention for 10-15 minutes. When EMTs arrived at Leach’s home, they used a defibrillator machine to restore normal heartbeat.
Leach was transported to nearby Oktibbeha County Hospital. Once stable, he was taken by helicopter to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.
