Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach agrees to be new Washington State head coach
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) ' Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is the new football coach at Washington State.
The school said Wednesday that Leach had agreed in principle to a five-year contract. He will be introduced next Tuesday at a news conference in Pullman.
Terms of the contract were not immediately available.
The 50-year-old Leach posted an 84-43 record at Texas Tech, leading the Red Raiders to 10 bowl appearances in 10 seasons. He was fired in 2009 amid allegations he mistreated a player with a concussion.
He replaces Paul Wulff, who was fired after four losing seasons.
