Mike Leach Accepts WSU Offer

In this 2009 AP file photo, then Texas Tech coach Mike Leach talks with his team during an NCAA college football game against Texas A&M in Lubbock, Texas. Reportedly, Leach has been offered the head coaching job at Washington State.

Bill Moos has said all along he wants to make Washington State a destination for coaches, not a waystation. “This place deserves big-name people,” he said earlier this week during the press conference announcing Paul Wulff’s firing. Wednesday, Moos roped in one of the bigger names in the college football coaching ranks, former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach. Leach agreed in principle to a five-year contract that will pay him more than $10 million, according to athletic department sources. He’ll be introduced as WSU’s 32nd head football coach at a press conference Tuesday/Vince Grippi, SR. More here.

Question: Did WSU do the right thing by letting Paul Wulff go and hiring Mike Leach?
