We are excited to have him lead the Vandal defense. He will do a great a job of leading and teaching.”
Idaho coach Paul Petrino met with the media Tuesday afternoon to discuss depth charts, quarterbacks and which players he's looking forward to seeing when spring football begins on Wednesday.
PULLMAN – Before the ball is snapped, the defense implemented by new Washington State defensive coordinator Alex Grinch will look pretty similar to the one employed by his predecessor, Mike Breske, at least in structure. The Cougars will still run a 3-4 base defense and with so many young starters last season, the personnel will for the most part be the same. Where Grinch hopes the difference will lie is in the ability to generate turnovers, repeatedly saying that it was “imperative” the Cougars find ways to take the ball away from opposing offenses.
PULLMAN – Alex Grinch will take over as the new defensive coordinator at Washington State and will try to make the Cougars’ defense as potent as its offense. Mike Leach dismissed defensive coordinator Mike Breske and outside linebackers coach Paul Volero six weeks ago, following WSU’s season-ending loss to Washington in the Apple Cup. Grinch will coach WSU’s secondary in addition to serving as the defensive coordinator.
PULLMAN – The day after Washington State’s season of high-scoring losses ended, head football coach Mike Leach dismissed defensive coordinator Mike Breske and outside linebackers coach Paul Volero. “We decided to make a change and wish them the best,” Leach said Sunday night through a spokesman.

Wednesday: This was the season the Cougars were supposed to turn the corner. Nine games in, we all know it didn’t happen. So will there be repercussions? There already have been some repercussions, of course. Head coach Mike Leach axed special teams coordinator – and assistant head coach – Erik Russell, a longtime friend. Such is the price of unmet expectations.
PULLMAN – When Washington State was at its worst during its deflating loss to Rutgers last Thursday, senior quarterback Connor Halliday was at his best. After a costly turnover in the fourth quarter, Halliday ran over to the offending receiver but did not express his frustration. Instead, he gave him a high-five and a smile. “I was just telling him that we’re going to need another score and I’m going to be coming back to you so forget about that,” Halliday said. “We’re going to win this game and we’ll laugh about it later.”

This is the third of eight position previews looking at WSU’s position-by-position prospects for the upcoming season. Today: Defensive backs. Tuesday: Linebackers. PULLMAN – Classes haven’t even started at Washington State and the freshman members of the Cougars’ defensive backfield are already feeling a bit overwhelmed with how much studying college requires.

LEWISTON – The depth chart has changed more than the roster since Washington State’s 2014 spring football practices ended. The Cougars scrimmaged for 62 plays on Saturday and coaches said that the starters and backups reflected how the snaps would shake out if a game were held today, providing hints at answers to questions about who has parlayed a good fall camp into a starting spot and which freshmen may see the field.

Although Deone Bucannon’s days of playing for the Cougars are over, Washington State defensive coordinator Mike Breske can still eke out a little more production from his graduated All-American safety. Breske is currently on a recruiting tour of the southeast. Even in places like Vicksburg, Mississippi, and Cottondale, Alabama, recruits recognize the WSU safety who led the team in interceptions and tackles in the last of his four years as a starter.
