Apple Cup 2011: Paul Wulff Believes He'll Be Coaching WSU Football Next Year

The Washington St. Cougars have been playing better this year. But at 4-7 and 2-6 in the Pac-12 they are doomed to finish out of the bowl running for the fourth straight season of the Paul Wulff era. So there is definite speculation that Wulff won't be returning next year to try and take Washington State the next step to bowl eligibility and maybe competing with the best of the conference.

Wulff doesn't seem too concerned. Dave Mahler of 950 KJR Radio had this report.

Asked Paul Wulff if he expects to be back at WSU next year: "Yeah, I think we've made some great strides."

It is true Washington State does look better every year. From a 2-11 team that had only one FBS win against winless Washington, to a 1-11 team that was shut out in Pac-12 play, to a 2-10 team that was functionally better but still unable to win, to a sub-mediocre squad this year, the Cougars do seem to be back on the winning track.

Whether it's fast enough for Washington State fans is another matter altogether. A win in the Apple Cup might go a long way to assuaging such fears.
