HOW DUMB CAN YOU BE? AKA THE SANTONIO HOLMES SCHOOL OF DUMB MOVES

Ryan Leaf, the legendary NFL quarterback bust, was placed on leave today from his position as quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M. ESPN's Joe Schad reports that the suspension came after Leaf asked one of his players for a painkiller.

Presumably Leaf was asking for something a little stronger than Tylenol or Advil. What isn't known is how the incident came to light. Did somebody overhear the question? Did Leaf get a guilty conscience? Did the player narc on his coach?

The latter seems to be the most likely. I'd imagine it has to be a little strange to play for Ryan Leaf. Anytime the coach critiques a player, the kid must be thinking, "dude, you're Ryan Leaf. What can you tell me about quarterbacking? I was at that game when you went 11-26 with 2 picks and threw a pass that hit your center in the thigh. And you're telling me to 'keep my wits under pressure'. Just like you did when you flipped out on that reporter, right?"

Leaf, who also coaches the school's golf team will be on leave "indefinitely."

If the incident is true, it's not too surprising. After all, Ryan Leaf never was very good at trying to score.

Probably hired him because Matt Millen wasn't available.

Truly the downside of being famous for your sports ability, hopefully the coverage will inspire John Daly into rehab and to do a situp once in a while....
