Double Coverage Football:
Washington State head coach Mike Leach has had enough of his players' tweeting and has joined a growing list of coaches that have instituted a Twitter ban. The news comes after a couple of players tweeted something "vulgar in nature" and led to questions from student reporters from the Murrow News Service. The Tweets were unrelated to the football program, but with the amount of scrutiny college football players fall under anything negative reflects poorly upon the program. Leach went on the record stating that if he sees anything from his players on Twitter, regardless of the nature, those responsible will be suspended. For any coach, but Leach in particular, the Twitter ban is a good move. Leach has had his fair share of unwanted attention the past few years and is no doubt excited to be back in the game. I don't blame him for wanting nothing more than to focus on football. He's already struggling to deal with forcing a culture change around Pullman where fa...
BEST OF MAXIM
Washington State's Mike Leach says he intends to be coaching the Cougars again next season.
Leach's name has come up in connection with some coaching vacancies across the country, particularly at North Carolina State.

MIKE LEACH CLOSED the deal on Thursday night. Junior college defensive lineman Lyman Faoliu had thought he would wait a little longer before making his decision, closer to signing day for mid-year JUCO transfers on Dec. 19. But with Leach in his living room on Thursday night, he changed his mind.
FOR ALL THE talk about Mike Leach's Air Raid offense, the head man of the Cougs is proving to be just as committed to stocking the coffers on the defensive side of the ball in the 2013 recruiting class.
MIKE LEACH HAS made a concerted effort to develop a recruiting pipeline in the state of Texas and the class of 2014 offers a prospective athlete with quick feet and bullheaded approach to the game.
Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day…or a Season
With Mike Leach as the head coach of the Washington State Cougars, the general consensus for the starving Cougar fan base was a bowl game.
Well, the team fell short, to say the least.
The Cougars finished their season at 3-9. The wins were few and far between, but they did end the year on a high note with an Apple Cup victory over the bowl...
