Washington State football coach Paul Wulff has been fired. The university said Tuesday that Wulff was let go after four years at the helm. Wulff is 9-40 in his four seasons at Washington State, including a 4-8 record this season that doubled the Cougars' win total from 2010 but failed to quiet critics. Wulff had one year remaining on his contract and was guaranteed a year's severance pay of $600,000 if he was let go before the end of the five years.
