And then there were eight. Paul Wulff was the latest Pac-12 coach to receive his walking papers.
"I appreciate all that Paul has done for Washington State football," athletic director Bill Moos said in a statement announcing the firing. "He was hired with the objective of rebuilding this program and establishing a solid foundation. For that I thank him."
CougCenter has their write-up and commentary here. They don't anticipate a new coach being announced any time soon.
"For those wondering, and I know there are many, I do not expect the 2 p.m. press conference to be the time or the place a new coach is announced. In all likelihood, it will be a standard coaching change press conference, with Moos taking questions about what's next and why the decision was made."
Although he only won 9 games in four years, was this a fair deal? Was Wazzu about to turn the corner and this move is premature? Is true that Mike Leach might be on his way to Pullman?
