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, and my work has appeared at 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.
