WSU announces firing of Paul Wulff

Washington State University has officially announced today the firing of football coach Paul Wulff after four years.

You can read the statement here. And here is our story.

Wulff was 9-40 in four years (4-32 in Pac-12 play) and concluded a 4-8 season (2-7 in the Pac-12) with a 38-21 loss to Washington in the Apple Cup Saturday.

WSU will become the fourth Pac-12 school to make a coaching change, joining Arizona (Mike Stoops), Arizona State (Dennis Erickson) and UCLA (Rick Neuheisel).

WSU athletic director Bill Moos will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. today to talk about the decision.

Whoever takes over the WSU job will have a young roster on his hands — the Cougars started just six seniors in the Apple Cup, one of whom was quarterback Marshall Lobbestael, a backup starting due to injuries to Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday, who will each return in 2012.

Whoever gets the job will also be the host coach for an Apple Cup that next year will be held on Nov. 23,, the day after Thanksgiving.
