More details on the strength coach process

WE'RE HEARING MORE details on Chris Dawson and how the strength coach hire process at Washington State unfolded this week...

Multiple sources tell CF.C that Chris Dawson actually accepted the job and was in Pullman for the team meeting that was held on Sunday.

He spoke to the team and told them how things were going to be under him as the Cougars' new strength coach.

However, by Tuesday, something changed and he was headed back to Kansas State.

Whether K-State jumped in to sweeten his deal there, whether the prospect of moving the family suddenly didn't sit well, is anyone's guess. But the upshot was that Dawson changed his mind sometime after Sunday's meeting where he addressed the Cougar team.

WSU has not announced the hiring of any assistant coaches, but the entire staff, minus brand new hire Mike Breske, is listed in the university's online directory, including Dawson, who was still listed as of early Friday afternoon.
