UPDATE: Vince Grippi, of the Spokesman-Review, reports that Wulff and athletic director Bill Moos met on Sunday to discuss the football program. Wulff's regular media availability was canceled, but the discussions with Moos will continue on Monday. Moos is reportedly interesting in hearing Wulff's "assessment of the season and where he would like to take the program from here."
Washington State head coach Paul Wulff is expected to be dismissed according to a local report, possibly as early Sunday or Monday.
The Seattle Times, citing sources close to the situation, report Wulff will be dismissed in a meeting with athletic director Bill Moos "barring a last-minute change of direction." The Cougars finished their season with a 38-21 loss to Washington in the Apple Cup on Saturday.
If the reports are true, Wulff will finish with a 9-40 record in four years as the head coach in Pullman. His .184 winning percentage is the worst in college football, and the worst in Washington State school history. Moos has been WSU's athletic director for 18 months, and reportedly has big plans to refresh and revive the football program. With an $80 million stadium remodeling project and new football offices in the plans, it's not surprising they want to make a change to help encourage donations.
The same Seattle Times report indicated that former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach is likely to be at the top of Washington State's list for replacements. Leach has made it clear he would like to return to coaching, but the sword swinger has not been involved with any detailed negotiations.
The Cougars jumped out to a 3-1 start this season, including picking up their second road win in the Paul Wulff era at Colorado. But dropping seven of their final eight games might not be enough to keep Wulff safe for another year in Pullman.
