Washington State Introduces Mike Leach
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Mike Leach was introduced Tuesday as the new head coach at Washington State.
Leach was introduced at a rally in the student union building that included hundreds of fans, football players and the marching band.
Leach replaces Paul Wulff, who was fired last week after four losing seasons.
Leach took Texas Tech to 10 bowl games in 10 seasons before he was fired in 2009 in a controversy involving a player with a concussion.
He will make $2.25 million per year in salary and other guaranteed income. His contract also includes bonus payments for things such as winning the Pac-12 championship or going to a BCS bowl that could push his pay over $3 million. That includes $25,000 for winning the Apple Cup.
