The Washington St. Cougars have reportedly done it: Mike Leach, former Texas Tech Red Raiders coach, will make Pullman his next port, a source tells Seattle Times' columnist Steve Kelley. The report was revealed on Twitter by Kelley's son and Seattle Times colleague, Mason Kelley. Wazzu fired four-year coach Paul Wulff on Tuesday amid speculation that they were going after Leach.
Adding fuel to the fire that something is in the works, Leach reportedly did not make his regularly-scheduled appearance Wednesday on XM Radio.
Wow. Does it seem like Washington State "had a plan"?
Wonder if "Chianti Dan" has one?
Mike Leach, believed to be the top target for Washington State to replace fired football coach Paul Wulff, has been offered the job, according to The Spokesman-Review. The newspaper said sources within the athletic department believe Leach will accept the offer.
The Seattle Times reported Saturday night that Wulff would likely be fired and Leach would be the prime target. An informed source told The Times that the Cougars believed they could have the deal done quickly.
