Leach becomes a Coug.
PULLMAN, WA - Washington State University put on a heck of a welcoming celebration for new head football coach, Mike Leach at the Pullman campus.

Leach has already invigorated a waning fan base after the slide of the program from the success of the early 2000's. That fact prompted many in the industry to ask him the million dollar question. Or based on his salary, perhaps we should call it the $2.25 million question.

"People ask me, why Washington State?" said Leach. "And once I get past in the back of my mind I'm thinking, well that's a stupid question.'"

Leach was greeted to throngs of excited students and fans at the school's student union building Wednesday afternoon for the new coach's welcome.
