Nebraska Hiring Mike Leach Is Now Seen As A Real Possibility

Would Washington State's head coach follow his AD to Lincoln, Neb.?

Nebraska named its new athletic director today.

The Huskers have hired Bill Moos, previously the athletic director at Washington State and Oregon.

It's a "stunning" hire for some, as Moos is 67 and was viewed by some as a WSU lifer.

What's most-intriguing about the hire: Moos is extremely close with Cougars' head coach Mike Leach.

Does this mean Leach would follow Moos to Lincoln once Mike Riley is fired?

It's tough to imagine Leach at Nebraska, but it would be pretty fun to watch.

The 56-year-old head coach led Washington State into the top 10 this year and has a 119–78 career record with the Cougars and Texas Tech.
