Former Pack assistant, Hawai'i coach Rolovich new head coach at Washington State
Washington State has hired former Nevada assistant Nick Rolovich as its new football coach. Rolovich is leaving behind the beaches of Hawaii for the chance to be a Power Five coach at Washington State. Rolovich agreed to a five-year contract that will pay about $3 million per season. He replaces Mike Leach, who left last week for the head job at Mississippi State. Rolovich's pass-happy, high-scoring offense is similar to Leach's system. Rolovich was the coach at Hawaii for four seasons, going 28-27 and taking the Rainbow Warriors to three bowl games.
Before returning to his alma mater, Rolovich was the Wolf Pack's offensive coordinator from 2012-15.
