Washington State head coach Mike Leach has been preparing his team for Spring practices coming up on Thursday, but it also appears that he is also preparing his coaching staff for the 2017 season that is rapidly approaching. On Monday evening, former Michigan linebacker, Joe Bolden, tweeted out his excitement to join the Cougars and the Speed D.

Bolden Graduated from Michigan in 2016 and started in 28 games over his career while totaling 270 tackles and 18.5 tackles for a loss. As a Freshman in 2012, he was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman team by both ESPN.com and BTN.com. In his Senior season he was named as an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention.

It is unclear what his position in Pullman will be exactly, but adding this kind of knowledge and youth to the coaching staff can only help the Cougar Speed D that will be replacing a few key parts this season.
