Moos Sets 2011 Football Expectation, Denies Bellotti Rumors

Brian's edit: Bumped for those of you that missed the interview. I'll be back with more on this, but talk amongst yourselves for now.


Bill Moos was on with Ian Furness on KJR in Seattle this afternoon and I didn't catch the whole interview but apparently I missed the most important part because on his Twitter account afterward, Furness said Moos expects at least 6 wins out of this team next season and he never discussed the head coaching position at WSU with Mike Bellotti.

Furness' Twitter Page

With his appearance on Furness' show, Moos did two things: 1) set a very clear expectation for the football team and the coaching staff next season. If they don't meet it, they're done and 2) squashed any rumors, despite some reports/sightings of Bellotti being in Pullman that he ever spoke to him about taking over for Wulff. The cynic in me believes Bellotti had no other reason to be in Pullman other than to talk to Moos about taking Wulff's job but Moos comes across as a pretty straight shooter and a guy who has no reason to be dishonest. 

I believe the most important thing he did in that interview was set a very clear expectation for the team. Now we aren't left to wonder what the expectation is, we all know it. Perhaps most importantly, Wulff knows it. While it's entirely likely Moos had already informed him of this, the public (and more importantly, the boosters) didn't know. Now the public knows and by making it known, the message is clear to Wulff: win or you're out. More importantly, now the people with the big check books know it too.

Moos' expectation is at least 6 wins. I think most people would agree with that. I, for one, would love to go to Las Vegas around Christmas (hint hint Vegas Bowl selection committee or whoever is in charge of that). But for you, what is the minimum number of wins Paul Wulff and this team must achieve for him to keep his job into 2012?
