Here’s what you need to know about new WSU head coach Nick Rolovich

Nick Rolovich, whose run-and-shoot offense helped turn around the Hawaii football program, is set to replace Mike Leach at Washington State, becoming the 33rd head coach in Cougar history.

Following are 33 things you may not know about the incoming coach:

1. Hawaii’s offenses have often had to carry the weight for the Rainbow Warriors’ inconsistent defenses. The Rainbow Warriors gave up at least 50 points 11 times in Rolovich’s four seasons – something that happened just three times during the same span at WSU.

2. The 40-year-old is married to Analea, a Maui native who met Rolovich while the two were attending UH.
