Today at 2:30 p.m. PT, Nick Rolovich finally will be officially introduced as the next head coach of the Washington State Cougars in a news conference that will be broadcast by Pac-12 Network.
Introductory news conferences typically are celebratory affairs, but this one is perhaps a bit more highly anticipated by fans than they usually are, given who Rolovich is replacing and also given what we know about Rolovich’s personality.
Rolovich spent the past four years as the head coach of the Hawaii Warriors, winning 18 games in the last two seasons at one of the most resource-challenged schools in the country. Athletics director Pat Chun moved quickly to hire Rolovich, as word leaked of his hiring just four days after Mike Leach accepted the job with the Mississippi St. Bulldogs.
The news conference will be in the be in the Rankich Club Room at Martin Stadium and is open to the public if you just happen to be in Pullman. For those of us not in Pullman, you can watch the introduction via Pac-12 Network on the following platforms:
