Even as Washington State football fight the physical battles in Utah in a snowstorm in November 19, WSU director Bill Moos mass began to discover the wonderful plan for the Pumas, which was built the warmer weather.

Moos spent more than three hours with Mike Leach on November 16 in Key West, Florida, home of Leach. And then WSU loses to Utah and stayed out of bowl contention, Moos came to a conclusion that was completed on Wednesday.

WSU hired Leach, former coach of Texas Tech with a lease renewal five years it will pay $ 2.25 million guaranteed per year, well above the school record for all coaches. Former basketball coach Tony Bennett makes $ 1,000,000 per year.

"A lot of schools wanted him," said Moos Wednesday afternoon. "He wants us."

Moos believes that by taking to launch a campaign donor to improve the facilities provided at WSU, and, when asked about Leach is expected to handle 19 Cougars is committed to recruiting, Moos gave that to a lesser extent is waiting in front of others.

"I guess (new staff) dense in most of the children," says Moos. "I'll tell you: There are many who want to come here."

Training Leach container 10 teams with the offense prolific Texas Tech (2000-09) before leaving the mess that ended with him suing the school. He stopped short of making a bonus of $ 800,000, claiming he was persecuted player, Adam James, by his administration to sit on warehouse equipment, while being treated for a concussion.

Between the recession, pending lawsuits, and some eccentric ways, Leach later became a figure radioactive to potential employers. However, Moos said Wednesday afternoon, "he and I discussed that I feel comfortable when in their legal status .."

The Times reported Leach became the target of Paul Wulff WSU dismissal, but it seems that the Pumas can be strong competition from Kansas due to a long friendship between Leach and KU Director Sheahon Zenger robust.

Asked specifically about Kansas, Moos said, "I really do not feel that we are fighting a school I know there banging on the door .. Many people like him and wanted the state of Washington, and I think that says a lot. "

There are things about WSU that might interest Leach of Kansas: He was a Western man - born in Susanville, California, and raised in Cody, Wyoming. - School is a rich history and two good midfielders in the hands of Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday, Pac-12 is more stable than the Big 12, and Moos has a solid reputation as director of athletics-minded football.

"He was a legend in this business," Leach said in a statement released by WSU.

In the same statement, WSU President Elson Floyd said, "I asked Bill Moos to select the best football coach in the country, and I'm sure you've done just that."

Moos said he took the trouble to tell Leach first visit that "I hope my football coach (Wulff) good ending." But he said Wednesday, "I have to always have other plans. I think if we have the opportunity to Mike Leach, I have to lay the groundwork for this new era of extremes.

"To be honest, he was someone to talk to and the only person I want."

Leach contract - is also "great incentive-laden," said Moos - calls on the first purchase of $ 2 million Moos said could be reduced to $ 450,000 per year through the life of the agreement. Additionally, the update package will pay a wizard "of $ 1.8 million compared with $ 1.3 million today.

Moos is credited to move Pac-12 for the same TV revenues revenue sharing among the members of the conference, and jump from television contracts with Fox and ESPN starting next year, so important for recovery.

"We can go in this direction," he said, "or that (project) the renovation of the stadium."

Raised Mormon, attended Brigham Young and Leach thought it would be a lawyer, and obtained his law degree at Pepperdine. One of the college coaches do not play several at that level, he became interested in football and a violation passed by issues related to poor Mumme at Iowa Wesleyan in the 1980s.

"We traveled all over the country to develop the idea," says Leach in 2008, referring to the passing game. "Just what I think is filled with good."

Valdosta State coach Leach 1992-1996, and work in Kentucky and Oklahoma assistant before taking over the Texas Tech Wherever you go, there is a high-octane offense.

Off the court, was known as someone who has a natural curiosity about many things, and say what you think. In 2007, criticized the performance of the Big 12 officials in the game as "a complete farce," and when it imposed a record fine of $ 10,000 for the conference, said he did not regret saying it himself.

In a 2005 article for The New York Times Magazine, author Michael Lewis explains: "Every season, Leach was something I wanted to know and learn as much as possible about it: Geronimo, Daniel Boone, whales, chimpanzees, grizzly bear (artist) Jackson Pollock. "

He is accused of leading the points on the Texas Tech and not the mind. When in 2004 against Nebraska, the team led 42-10 entering the fourth quarter and threw 16 passes the rest of the trip - usually break - and three in a row then proceeded Technology, 70 - 10.
