Paul Wulff Fired: WSU Releases Statement Confirming The News

The Washington State athletic department confirmed Paul Wulff has been relieved of his duties in a press release this morning. The news was first reported by Vince Grippi, following a meeting between Bill Moos and Paul Wulff. The release gave a bit of insight into the decision, while also vaguely discussing what comes next.

Here's Moos' statement on the decision.

"Paul and I met at length Sunday, and then spoke again this morning, after which I determined the best path for Cougar football moving forward is to have a change of leadership," said Moos. "I appreciate all that Paul has done for Washington State football. He was hired with the objective of rebuilding this program and establishing a solid foundation. For that I thank him."

Moos also discussed what's next, in a way, saying he expects to move quickly to find a new head coach.

"We will begin the process of naming the next head coach immediately," said Moos. "I will not be discussing details of the hiring process, only that I expect to name a successful candidate as soon as possible."

For those wondering, and I know there are many, I do not expect the 2 p.m. press conference to be the time or the place a new coach is announced. In all likelihood, it will be a standard coaching change press conference, with Moos taking questions about what's next and why the decision was made.
