Mississippi State head coach Mike Leach has been spending his quarantine like everyone else across the country. He's been watching Netflix's Tiger King.

The personable head coach appeared on The Paul Finebaum Show on Monday to discuss Netflix's hit series. Leach couldn't get enough of it.

“When I was on with Clay Travis we talked for an hour about ‘Tiger King,’ which I highly recommend,” Leach said. “Everybody needs to see ‘Tiger King.’ It’s like Quentin Tarantino on steroids except he’d have to back off on some of the facts to make the thing believable because the truth is wilder than fiction.”

Leach had an incredibly viral tweet about the Netflix documentary, too.

For those unaware, Tiger King is a documentary about rival "big cat" zoos and the crazy stories (and crime) that came with it.

Leach's tweet has been retweeted more than 12,000 times and liked more than 80,000 times.

The SEC's new head coach added that he's doing more than just watching Netflix, though.

“I have time to organize my food so I’m eating pretty nutritious and telling myself I’m gonna exercise but that hasn’t happened yet,” Leach joked. "But I do go out and ride my bike so I am getting some exercise.”
