(VIDEO) Mike Leach says a grad transfer QB could succeed at WSU

USC quarterback Max Browne has been given permission to transfer to other Pac-12 programs, and will take advantage of the graduate transfer rule allowing him to play next year. Browne was immediately linked to Washington State by speculators because is from Sammamish, Washington, because the Cougars could be in need of a quarterback next season if Luke Falk enters the draft and because WSU's Air Raid is a pretty fun offense for quarterbacks to play in.

But is it an easy one? Graduate transfers have precious little time to learn a new system if they are going to be the starters, and the Air Raid is unlike Browne's current offense at USC.

Mike Leach seems to think it would be possible. He talks about that and more in the post-practice video below.
