Washington State Cougars Roster 2019 Cougars Roster

Head Coach: Mike Leach        2017 Salary: $3,075,000        Offensive Coordinator: Mike Leach       Defensive Coordinator: Tracy Claeys         

Stadium: Martin Stadium       Surface: Turf        City: Pullman        State: Washington

About the only thing that can slow a Mike Leach squad down is the lack of a quarterback to run his traditional high-octane attack. Leach’s Air Raid makes quarterbacks great and the question is who will be the next great Cougars quarterback to replace Luke Falk. Practically everyone who has ever put on shoulder pads and a helmet in the running to be the Cougars’ quarterback this season. Washington State rarely runs the ball so transitioning to a rushing attack is simply not an option. Chances are that Wazzu will find a quarterback at some point and Mike Leach will make him an instant legend. Gardner Minshew is the frontrunner to fill the role for the Cougars this season.

Leach has never had a losing season at any stop along the way for him. While this year’s Cougars squad will not run on autopilot, chances are that this team will not struggle for long. Still, there was much offseason turmoil for the Cougars to deal with including departing assistants and the tragic death of a player. A key loss on defense was the coordinator Alex Grinch. It is simply unheard of for a Mike Leach team to be one of the better defenses in the country, yet Grinch had the Cougars in that position.

The likely outcome for the Cougars this season is yet another bowl game. Still, it is unlikely that the Cougars will challenge for Pac-12 supremacy, even in what shapes up to be a down year for the conference.
