Mike Leach apologizes for 'offensive' tweet
Mike Leach is a regular — and usually hilarious — Twitter user.
More times than not Leach is cracking jokes and sharing funny memes to his 350,000-plus followers. However, following a recent Twitter post with an image depicting a noose, Leach is apologizing to his followers.
Leach took to Twitter Thursday with the apology for sharing the since-deleted tweet that showed a meme of a woman knitting her husband a noose with the caption, “After 2 weeks of quarantine with her husband, Gertrude decided to knit him a scarf..”
“I sincerely regret if my choice of images in my tweets were found offensive. I had no intention of offending anyone,” Leach tweeted Thursday.
I sincerely regret if my choice of images in my tweets were found offensive. I had no intention of offending anyone.

Multiple Mississippi State players commented on the tweet, including captain linebacker Erroll Thompson and defensive end Kobe Jones.

Pending the slowing of the coronavirus, Leach will bring the Air Raid offense to the SEC West in 2020. His debut will be against New Mexico.
