Quite a few teams were looking for coaching hires this offseason, and still are. The storylines were endless. We had retirements, we had firings, we had next job offers, we had returns to the conference. The overarching trend for this offseason is the tweaking of staff via assistants. Washington State is the only team currently looking for a new HC. As we head towards the finish of the coaching hires, let’s take a look at the in’s and out’s so far for the Conference of Champions.
