"Mike Leach has verbally agreed to become the next head coach at Washington State. Leach was offered the position late Tuesday afternoon, CBS learned.
The 50-year-old Leach replaces Paul Wulff, who was dismissed Tuesday morning. The hiring of Leach would seem to mesh with Washington State athletic director Bill Moos' comment earlier at the press conference where he announced Wullf's firing that he likes a "flashy, high-octane offense that lights up the scoreboard."
No word yet if the Cougar fans who get their Washington State flag in the crowds at every ESPN College GameDay stop will add a skull and crossbones flag to the mix in honor of Leach, but that wouldn't be too much of a shock.
