It's a busy day for new Washington State Cougars head coach Mike Leach, as well as for those of you planning to follow along with his media mini-tour. Leach flew into Spokane on Monday evening, heading over to the Davenport Hotel for a night of rest and relaxation. On Tuesday, he'll head to Pullman for his formal introduction to the world, which will be preceded by a meeting with WSU president Elson Floyd.
If you'd like to greet the coach -- and we highly encourage anyone in Pullman to do this -- head down to the Colorado Street side of Bohler around 8:30 a.m. He'll be getting into town right around then, so give him a welcome.
Before he runs the media gauntlet, he has some business to attend to. Leach needs to be re-certified by the NCAA in order to call recruits and do all those coach-like things, so that test should be happening on Tuesday morning, probably first thing. The rest of his schedule can be found below.
8:30ish a.m.: Arrive in Pullman.
11:30ish a.m.: Meet with Elson Floyd and Bill Moos, plot world domination.
12:00 p.m.: Introductory press conference in the CUB Ballroom. It is open to the public and there will be a live-stream. We'll also have an open thread, because that's what we do.
4:30ish p.m.: Board jet, fly across the state.
6:30 p.m.: Another event in Seattle. This will be a closed event. I'll be there and will have something on it after.
Again, we'll have all your streaming and threading information closer to game-time. Until then, try not to explode with excitement.
