Moos sticks with Wulff at WSU
Washington State football coach Paul Wulff will return next season, athletic director Bill Moos said Sunday.
There had been rampant speculation that Wulff, 5-32 in his first three years, would be fired. But the Cougars (2-10, 1-8 Pac-10) showed improvement in the second half of this season. Moos said school president Elson Floyd left the decision to him, and that the goal of both is to see a successful football program.
"It is my feeling at this particular time that the best course of action to move in that direction is to continue with the current leadership," Moos said in a news release.
Washington State lost to archrival Washington 35-28 in an exciting game Saturday in Pullman. The Cougars beat Oregon State in their previous game - their first Pac-10 win in two seasons.
His supporters contend the Cougars are unquestionably better than when Wulff took over a decimated program from Bill Doba in 2008.
"This team is capable of going on next year and being a bowl contender," Wulff said earlier this week.
