After Ken Bone was fired from WSU, Cougar fans were excited to hear who the next head coach of the Washington State Cougars would be. We've had a couple of days to marinate on our picks would be, but it would appear that we may have to wait a couple of days to find out who the new coach will be.

On Monday's edition of Bill Moos' radio show, he gave a little bit of an update on the coaching search. And, by "a little bit, I mean a little bit." Moos doesn't say much about the search but he does say that he hopes to have the new coach in place within the next 10-14 days and for sure "before the end of the NCAA tournament." While Moos didn't say anything else about the search many people have narrowed down the list of potential new coaches.Jacob Thorpe says that 3 names have surfaced: Leon Rice, Ernie Kent and Marvin Menzies.

One thing is clear, WSU will have a new coach before you know it. The odds on favorite is more than likely former Oregon coach Ernie Kent, but you never know what's in store when Bill Moos is in charge.
