Jeff Nusser

Co-founder and Managing Editor

CougCenter responsibilities include: Planning and coordinating content; managing the website; writing.

I'm a freelance journalist who co-founded CougCenter in August 2008 because writing about WSU athletics is my passion.

Past employers include The (Tacoma, Wash.) News Tribune and CBSSports.com, and my work has appeared at ESPN.com Insider, Basketball Prospectus, Lindy's college sports annuals and Horizon Air Magazine. I own the currently-on-hiatus Cougar Sports Weekly, an email newsletter that real people actually paid real money to receive.

Helping teenagers master the English language constitutes the bulk of my day job.

ESPN gives WSU and Mike Leach some recruiting love

Mike Leach has never been big on chasing stars ... but the 2015 class, it has a lot of talent and is easily the biggest surprise in the Pac-12 at this point.

It's arguable whether WSU's star shooting guard is the top player on the team, which plays its first game in China tomorrow, but what is not arguable is that his t-shirt game is on point. (via Pac-12 Facebook)
