Update [11:27 p.m.] It looks like Rice won't be the guy. On Friday night ESPN's Andy Katz reported this:

From Pullman -- Boise State coach Leon Rice has long been associated with the vacant Washington State men's basketball coaching job and with good reason, it turns out. Today I reported that Rice interviewed for the position earlier this week. Coming on the heels of the news that WSU has offered the position to a candidate and it seems that Rice becoming the next WSU head coach is a distinct possibility.
We'll keep you updated as we find out more.
