Washington State football coach Mike Leach is in Southeast Asia for some unknown reason, and its just more proof of his legendary status growing.

The Seattle Times reported the following on him making an appearance on Cambodia:

This isnt the start of a new joke, but a description of reports out of the Southeast Asian nation that Cougar head football coach Mike Leach and three Washington lawmakers are in the Cambodian capital this week, where they met with the prime minister and other government officials.

Legislative staff members back in Olympia were working Tuesday to come up with details of the trip after Sens. Mike Baumgartner and Doug Ericksen, and Rep. Vincent Buys, along with Leach, were shown in meetings with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.

It was unclear whether the lawmakers were paying for the trip themselves or traveling as guests of a private or government organization. The state is apparently not paying for the trip.

He also didnt just visit Cambodia; he made a stop in Taiwan, too. Dont worry — weve also got some photos, and theyre awesome.

Mike Leach is really enjoying the offseason:

Great thanks to WSU Alum, Ben Hsiang, for taking us to ancient mountain mining town Jiuman today! Ben was a GREAT tour guide today. I look forward to seeing him in Pullman!

I want to thank WSU Alum, Adam Chen, for being such a GREAT host in Taiwan. I hope to see you in Pullman!

This is a famous carving in Taiwan called The Meat Shaped Stone. Amazing and unique.

Enjoying my time in Cambodia with a Washington State Trade & Friendship mission. Good to promote education relationships between Cambodia and WSU #GoCougs

I have so many questions that I dont even know where to begin. Anybody who doesnt love and appreciate what Mike Leach is to college football has no sense of humor. Most football coaches never leave the film room, and those who do generally arent solid coaches.

Leach, a very talented coach, is spending the month of May in Southeast Asia. It doesnt make any sense. I would also pay so much money to be with him on this trip or any trip. I bet its entertaining as all hell. Everything Mike Leach does is hilarious. He could probably narrate his own funeral, and itd be incredible. (SLIDESHOW: These Sexy Women Love Football)

I would have loved to have been there to see the local reaction to this man. They must have been at a loss for words. Were at a loss for words here in America when it comes to Leach.

This man is a legend of the game, and I hope he gets a job someday in the SEC or the Big Ten. His talents are being wasted on the small stage of the PAC-12. America deserves him and everything that comes with him to be on the biggest stage possible.
