According to multiple reports, Washington State has it’s newest head football coach.
Hawaii’s Nick Rolovich has been tapped to lead the Cougars and replace Mike Leach, who left a week ago for Mississippi State.
According to Pete Thamel from Yahoo Sports, the deal is worth $3 million dollars per year for five years. The 40-year old is a former Hawaii quarterback who has been around the program since 2000 as a player and coach. For the past 10 seasons he’s been the QB/offensive coordinator and became the head coach in 2016. He has taken the Warriors to three bowl games. Rolovich’s all-time coaching record is 28-27 with a record of 2-1 in bowl games.
Much like his predecessor, Rolovich will continue the pass-happy approach from the Mike Leach era. At Hawaii, Rolovich’s team finished 10-5 in 2019 and put up 34 points per game.
Here’s how it’s being received on social media.
