I don’t know if anyone else is happy with this, but I love the idea of Leach in the PAC 12. I’m totally impressed with Washington State and this move. After their past few coaching hires, Leach will bring in a name that will garner some attention from recruits. Leach’s offense should cause problems for the PAC 12’s defenses once he finds the right QB, and he already has a freshman that has a pretty good arm in Connor Halliday, who won offensive freshman of the week in his first start two weeks ago.

Wazzu fired coach Paul Wulff after a horrendous 4 seasons where he led the Cougars to only 9 wins. Wazzu has had a few big name coaches in their history. Coaches like Jackie Sherill (1 year 3-8 record), who went on to win at Texas A&M and had mild success at Mississippi State, Dennis Erickson (2 years 12-10-1), not much to say there, and Mike Price (14 years 83-78), who was more famously known for his strip club debacle BEFORE becoming the head coach at Alabama.

Leach has only been a head coach at one school, Texas Tech from 2000 – 2009, and has never won less than 7 games in a season, with 11 wins being the most in 2008.

Leach was fired following the 2009 season for supposedly locking Adam James in a closet during practice. #FireCraigJames There has been rampant debate over that topic since his firing.

All Wazzu fans would probably just be happy with a bowl appearance. Their last one was the 2003 Holiday Bowl, that they won over Texas 28-20.

Not to mention, kids may not mind being locked in a closet in Washington, may get them out of the wind and cold for a little while.

And because we’ve disinterested you with Washington State stuff AGAIN, here’s some WazZOO talent (not sure how much of that there is up there in Pullman).
