“I’ve spent more than two decades at the University of Nevada and I’ll forever be thankful for everything that this University and the Northern Nevada community has done for me and for my family. I want to thank Chris Ault and all of the administrators, coaches and staff that I’ve had the privilege of working with over the years. My family and I are truly excited for this next chapter of our lives but Reno and the University of Nevada will always have a special place in our hearts.”

Wilson and Bethea will join former Wolf Pack assistant coach Jim Mastro on Mike Leach's staff at Washington State.
