Paul Wulff Likely To Be Fired As Washington State Head Coach, According To Report

According to a report following the Apple Cup, Washington State head coach Paul Wulff is likely to be fired. Mike Leach is reportedly at the top of the Cougars' wish list, as well.

Washington State head coach Paul Wulff is likely to be fired and a move could come within the next two days, according to a report following the Apple Cup. On Saturday, the Cougars fell to in-state rival Washington at CenturyLink Field, 38-21, and if reports are true the 2011 Apple Cup will have been Wulff's final game at the helm in Pullman.

The report comes from Bud Withers of the Seattle Times, citing sources familiar with the process. Additionally, Withers says former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach would be at the top of the Cougars' list, should Wulff be fired.

A reversal of thinking is unlikely, and sources familiar with the process say the Cougars will have former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach at the top of their list of possible replacements. Leach has been out of coaching since 2009 after a controversial exit from Tech that resulted in him suing the school.

Wulff's Cougars finished the year at 4-8, battling through injuries at the quarterback spot -- most notably Jeff Tuel and, later, Connor Halliday. To this point, Wulff holds a 9-40 record as head coach at Washington State.
