WSU coach Doba sums up spring practice


As promised, here are a few sound bites from Bill Doba’s press conference today. There are a couple of ups and downs in the quality, but, if you want to know what Doba said in answer to specific questions, you can hear them here.

• On the running back situation, the head coach praised Chris Ivory and said Dwight Tardy is heading into the fall No. 1 at the position. Listen.

• Cornerback was a spot the Cougs concentrated on this spring and Doba feels strides were made. Listen.

• Doba is currently meeting with players to help them set goals for the summer and fall. Listen.

• There was play at certain positions this spring that really impressed the veteran coach. Listen.

• The Cougars have already voted on next fall’s captains, and Doba explains why he lets the players pick. Listen.

• Next season’s Apple Cup will be the week after Thanksgiving, and Doba gives his reasons why he’s not a fan. Listen.
