Mike Leach is embracing the power of the ‘stache. 

Fake mustaches have become popular on Washington State’s campus these days in tribute to starting QB Gardner Minshew, the East Carolina transfer whose sterling play has the Cougars at 9-1, and his facial hair. 

Minshew lifted Wazzu to a 31-7 win at Colorado on Saturday with 35 completions for 335 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. 

Afterwards, as Leach was giving a postgame interview on live TV, Minshew stuck a fake mustache — acquired from who knows where — on his coach. 

Leach took it in stride, and delivered a very, well, Mike Leach interview about “Minshew Mania.” 

“I do not even assume he had a mustache once I recruited him, I do not recall” Leach stated. “Then he is were given greater than a mustache too, and I do not know why everyone simplest notices his, numerous those children have mustaches.”

By no means exchange, Mike Leach. By no means exchange.
