Morning links: Cougars appear to be done hiring coaches
Michigan CBs coach Roy Manning has been been hired as outside LBs coach at Washington State per source.— Thayer Evans (@ThayerEvansSI) January 18, 2015
Thayer Evans of Sports Illustrated reported last night that the Cougars have hired Roy Manning to coach the outside linebackers.
If true, and I see no reason to believe it isn't, that means new defensive coordinator Alex Grinch will solely handle the responsibility of coaching the secondary, much like Mike Breske did last year.
Manning coached cornerbacks at Michigan last season and is considered to be an excellent recruiter. We'll have more on WSU's reported new hire as soon as we get it.
Here are the links:
-- Oregon State shut down the previously potent WSU offense yesterday. Here is another story from the Associated Press. We've also got postgame video of Ernie Kent and the players.
-- OSU got a career game from Langston Morris-Walker.
-- Arizona State picked up its first Pac-12 win over visiting Colorado.
-- Arizona regained its place as the dominant team in the Pac-12 with a blowout win over Utah.
-- Stanford whipped the defending national champion on the boards and the scoreboard.
-- Jernard Jarreau's knee surgery was successful but Washington will be without the forward for a few weeks.
