WSU WR Tyler Baker talks about his pet wolf

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

We've known Tyler Baker had a pet wolf for quite some time. Mike Leach broke the story last fall, including the tidbit that some players call Baker "Wolfy."

The wolf situation became more clear on Sunday as Baker discussed his unique pet. Baker spoke to the media after the second fall camp practice and Jacob Thorpe was there to document the very important details. The wolf talk starts around the 40-second mark, but the entire interview is worth a listen.

So there you have it. Tyler Baker has a dog that is about 1/4 wolf and does an interesting bark/howl thing.

That wasn't the only revelation to come out of camp on Sunday. Defensive line coach Joe Salave'a also met with the media and is now sporting a goatee and looks like he wants to demolish people. Even more so than usual. That should help with the sideline intimidation next season.

A competitive second day of practice for the Cougars | The Spokesman-Review
For awhile, it looked like the offense would have its own version of Saturday's defensive showcase. But the defense had its own reasons to be pleased. Defensive coordinator Alex Grinch was frustrated with some easy touchdowns by the offense that were the result of defensive players mixing up their assignments or losing sight of the offensive player, particularly during the skeleton drill and the WR vs. DB drill.
