Mike Leach, the farewell of the state of Mississippi and the history of a restaurant

STARKVILLE, Miss. – When Mike Leach first arrived at the seafood and soul food restaurant called WTF, he ordered the chicken wings with honey gold a certain way.

“Extra crispy,” he said to Shan Suber, the owner and chef.

“Extra crispy?” said Suber. “That’s how I like my wings too!”

As of that meeting in 2020, Leach is the former State of Mississippi Football Coach, and Suber, a black single mother from the Mississippi Delta, became close. Their relationship blossomed into a friendship, and Leach went from being a regular to a confidant.
