Paul Wulff Fired: Coaching Search To Begin Immediately

With the announcement that the Washington State Cougars had fired Paul Wulff on Tuesday, WSU athletic director Bill Moos was adamant that the search for his replacement would begin immediately. The decision came after Wulff and Moos met over the weekend to discuss this past season, according to a press release from the school earlier on Tuesday:

"Paul and I met at length Sunday, and then spoke again this morning, after which I determined the best path for Cougar football moving forward is to have a change of leadership," said Moos. "I appreciate all that Paul has done for Washington State football. He was hired with the objective of rebuilding this program and establishing a solid foundation. For that I thank him."

Moos added that he plans to begin the search for a new head coach immediately.

"We will begin the process of naming the next head coach immediately," said Moos. "I will not be discussing details of the hiring process, only that I expect to name a successful candidate as soon as possible."

Wulff was only 9-40 in his four seasons at WSU. Four of those wins came this season as the Cougars finished 4-8 and 2-7 in the PAC-12.
