Mike Leach New Coaching Staff Includes UCLA RB Coach Jim Castro

Mike Leach has been hired as the new Washington St. Cougars head coach, which brings all sorts of nice quirks. One of them will be the type of assistants he hires with his new coaching staff.

Leach doesn't usually make typical hires, which always makes it very compelling who the Cougars end up hiring. Chris Level has the reports here, here and here.

  • Clay McGuire as offensive line coach after working with the special teams and running backs at East Carolina. McGuire is a former running back of Leach's.
  • Eric Morris, a former wide receiver of Leach, will coach the inside receivers. Dennis Simmons (who worked with Leach at Tech) will coach the outside receivers.
  • Jim Mastro was the running back coach brought in from Nevada to help install the Pistol offense at UCLA. He will join Washington State in a similar capacity.
