Frank was a forester and the family moved around several times while Mike was growing up, before finally settling in Cody, Wyoming. He was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Leach graduated from Cody High School in 1979; he played football there from 1975–1978 and was recruited to play at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah.

An ankle injury that he sustained in high school ruled out playing college football, and he played rugby instead.

Leach stayed close to the football program, occasionally sitting in on film room sessions.
