Donald Trump joined in among the many people who remembered Mike Leach after the Mississippi State coach died earlier this week.

Leach was a supporter of Trump’s and endorsed him as president, and once shared that he and Trump had a friendship for years. Leach said about 6 years ago at the time of his endorsement that he traveled to New York and met Trump in his office.

Trump, in a statement after Leach’s passing, called Leach “an incredible Patriot and Coach, with a big heart for our Country and for Football. From the very beginning, Mike was on Team MAGA because he believed in our Great American Dream, something he lived, and helped others achieve for themselves.”

Trump added his deepest condolences to Leach’s wife Sharon and their family.
