FROM STANFORD — There's a report out of Missouri tonight that David Yost, formerly the offensive coordinator at Missouri under coach Gary Pinkel, has interviewed with Mike Leach to fill the opening on Washington State's offensive staff.
It's not entirely clear from the Columbia Daily Tribune story what Yost's official title would be, though the story notes that he would have some input in the offense. That seems to imply that he wouldn't simply be a replacement of Eric Morris at inside receivers coach.
Yost's background is in the spread offense, which he helped implement at Missouri to decent success. He resigned from his job at that school on Dec. 3 due to “personal reasons,” according to the report.
Leach is also searching for a replacement for Jeff Choate, the linebackers coach who recently accepted the defensive coordinator job at UTEP.
