NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jordin Ereth predicts the men on Mike Leach’s defensive side of the ball that will have impact seasons in 2012 for WSU. Xavier Cooper , Travis Long, Damante Horton, Chester Su’a and Deone Bucannon. Defensive Coordinator Mike Breske’s system and Leach’s offense seem to be a match made in heaven. We all hope so for WSU’s Pac 12 hopes.
NWSB’s Washington State Cougars blogger Insider Steve tells us today the real competition hasn’t started yet with regards to Jeff Tuel vs. Connor Halliday at Cougs offseason practices. It won’t begin until Halliday is 100% healthy and on the practice field giving Tuel his best shot. At that point Coach Mike Leach can begin the process of evaluating these two.
Sources at ESPN offices in Bristol Connecticut are saying the Washington State Cougars Football program has HIRED Mike Leach as their new Head Football Coach. AS a Washington Huskies fan myself, I’ll be interested to see how Mike Leach and Steve Sarkisian do for recruiting in the state of Washington now.
