PULLMAN, Wash. (AP)? Washington State football coach Paul Wulff was fired Tuesday after four years during which his teams won only nine games.
Wulff was 9-40 in his four seasons at Washington State, the worst winning percentage of any coach in the programs history. The Cougars went 4-8 this season, doubling their win total from 2010. They were just 4-32 in conference play under Wulff.
Wulff said he was leaving with a heavy heart.
The great thing about Washington State University and being a Cougar is we dont do it like everybody else, Wulff said, his voice thick with emotion. We stick together and dont eat our own.
I believe the innocence of WSU has been lost today, Wulff said.
He said he believes that the task of turning around a struggling program was not possible in the time he was given, especially after injuries hurt his team.
