    We are now entering into the 4th season of the Mike Leach era, and it has been underwhelming thus far. He took over for Wulff in 2012, and he alienated a lot of fans with how the 2012 season went down. His 3-9 record was a step back for a team that many fans felt should have competed for a bowl (nothing special, but 6-6 to 8-4 was the general thought at the time). He did lead the Cougs to their first bowl in a decade in 2013 (a typically heartbreaking loss) before the team took a step back in 2014.

    Like everywhere else he's been, offense doesn't seem to be the problem, but the defense is just horrible (38.5 opts/game is worst since Paul Wulff's second season). The Cougs have a string of bad defensive years, they haven't allowed fewer than 30 points a game in a season since 2006. Don't expect miracles on defense, so the offense is gonna have to make up the slack.

    So, the question is, with a record of 12-25, what does Leach have to do to stay as the head football coach in Pullman? Would the college fire him if they have another losing record?
