Fight-song challenged, but wired up w/ Leach

PULLMAN -- Clay McGuire probably knows as much about Mike Leach as anybody. The new WSU offensive line coach was a player or coach on nine of Leach's 10 bowl teams at Texas Tech. He spent the last two years coaching running backs at East Carolina, and says he's excited to be reunited with his mentor. While they disagree strongly on cowboy boot styles, they're simpatico otherwise.

WesCo standout will be preferred WSU walk-on

HE ALREADY FELT PRETTY good about Washington State headed into this past weekend. The Cougs don't have a scholie open for the 6-4, 230-pounder right now but he liked the idea of being a preferred walk-on at Wazzu. The official trip to the Palouse clinched it, and he'll officially join the Cougars later this summer.
