It's been a rough patch for Ernie Kent's Washington State Cougars with seven straight losses dropping WSU to 9-12 on the season. The losing streak has also dropped Kent's career winning percentage at WSU to .423. That puts him 13th out of the 18 coaches who have coached at least one game at WSU.

While Kent won't make either of the following lists, at least not this week, let's see how well you know the good and bad coaching stints at WSU.

Q1: Who are the five WSU men's basketball coaches with at least a .500 record (minimum 20 games)?

Q2: Who are the two WSU men's basketball coaches with a .400 or lower winning percentage (minimum 20 games)?

JaMarcus Shephard is the football-coaching equivalent of a self-made man. The newest addition to the Cougars’ staff played his college football at Division III DePauw University in Indiana. He got his start in coaching thanks to an academic mentor who saw potential in him.
