HOT COUGAR ACTION: An Interview With Bill Moos

Most administrators and coaches in college athletics are very careful with their words. They speak in cliches and often sound as if a public relations representative is feeding them answers. Bill Moos is not one of those administrators.

Moos joined John Canzano on KXL 101 Tuesday and the nearly 15 minute interview is a must listen for anyone who follows WSU athletics. The interview touches on a variety of subjects including the hiring of Mike Leach, Moos' opinion on Leach's exit at Texas Tech, expectations for 2012, Moos' return to WSU and his relationship with Phil Knight.

WSU may not have won much on the field recently, but when it comes to interesting interviews from the coach and athletic director, we have to be the best in the country.

Going into the 2012 season, it looks like rushing will need the most work from the Cougars. Last season, Washington State had two running backs splitting time in the backfield. However, this did not hurt their points per game numbers as they had 29.8 points per game (45th overall) in 2011.
