Former NFL bust Ryan Leaf Resigns From Coaching Position

Former NFL QB Ryan Leaf

It appears that former NFL “quarterback” Ryan Leaf is in trouble again. Leaf who is the quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M asked one of his players for a pain pill. It appears it wasn not just advil or tylenol that Leaf was aking for.

Leaf is also the school’s Golf coach. It is not known how the school became aware of the situation but he has been placed on leave “indefinitely”.


In an update to this story Ryan Leaf has resigned from both of his coaching jobs at West Texas A&M. The school made the announcement Thursday.

“Coach Leaf offered his resignation this morning, which I accepted,” WTAMU athletic director Michael McBroom said. “He does not want his personal issues to become a distraction to the players that he has coached for the past three seasons.

“I wish Ryan all the success in the world. He’s been a part of our family for the past three years and it’s always hard to lose a member of your family. But we will move on and so will Ryan Leaf.”

    Ryan Leaf is a kook and always will be no matter where he is or what he is doing. He is a punk ass that will never grow up. It puts a smile on my face everytime I see him take 1 step forward and 5 steps back.

    Something you need to remember. People have proven through the centuries that they are not perfect. In fact if you step back and count there are more people that did not make it in the NFL than did. This also applies in life, most successful people have failed numerous times. It may take Ryan decades to figure out he needs to change his decision making process but when he does, and has some sucess at something I’m sure you will have something negative to say.
