Washington State head coach Mike Leach is not happy with the way his team has been playing. After two consecutive losses to Eastern Washington and Boise State the coaching staff has decided they needed to make some changes to the depth chart. These changes come after Leach spoke about his displeasure with the team and their play. Stefanie Loh of the Seattle Times went into depth about the changes as well.
Two weeks ago Gerard Wicks was listed as the backup to Jamal Morrow but had just two carries for 9 yards last week. Redshirt freshman James Williams has moved into the spot of backup after a very promising spring. Although not putting up the most impressive numbers in his first two games, 5 carries for 14 yards and 3 catches for 42 yards, he has shown enough to move up the depth chart.
Marcus Strong has impressed the coaches enough to make his way to backing up Darrien Molton. The true freshman did not play against Eastern but has impressed coaches more than enough in the offseason that they are willing to burn his redshirt year.
Marcellus Pippins and Treshon Broughton also still listed as "or" for the right side corner as they each have started a game this season.
