WSU players fired up after meeting new football coach Nick Rolovich

PULLMAN – Just before 4 p.m. Tuesday, Washington State football players hiked up and down icy staircases, trudged through snowy pathways and drove on slick roads to make a late-afternoon meeting at the Cougar Football Complex.

If any of them were uncertain or iffy about their future with a new coach, a brief chat with Nick Rolovich inside the glitzy, $61 million home of Washington State football might have been the thing to settle their nerves.

It isn’t clear what Rolovich told the Cougars during his first meeting, on his first day in charge of a Power Five football program, but the large majority of WSU players seemed to come out of the meeting with more confidence than they entered with.
