Paul Wulff is likely to be fired as Washington State's head coach. Could Mike Leach replace him in Pullman?
Paul Wulff's time at Washington State may be up. Bud Withers of the Seattle Times cites sources in reporting that Wulff will be fired after a meeting with athletic director Bill Moos, barring a change of heart. That meeting could take place as early as late Sunday.
Wulff's 2011 season was his best at Washington State: the Cougars went 4-8, and beat an Arizona State team that beat USC. But that minor distinction certainly doesn't cancel out the fact that Wulff had as many conference wins (two) in 2011 as he did in the three seasons prior to it, or that his 9-40 record at Washington State is the worst in the school's history.
Withers also reports that former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach may be the top candidate to replace Wulff. Leach hasn't coached since being ousted at Texas Tech in late 2009.
