Eaton leaves WSU football

Former Washington State University All-America defensive lineman Chad Eaton has left his position as a graduate assistant with the Cougars, coach Paul Wulff confirmed Sunday.

"The bottom line is he has chosen to leave (the program) at this time and he may (have a future) opportunity to help ... with (senior associate athletic director) Mike Marlow," Wulff said, adding he was unwilling to discuss the departure in greater detail.
