  • Head Washington State Football Coach Mike Leach waits to see if a WSU touchdown would be ruled a score during the first half

Despite reports stating he'd met with administrators from Arkansas earlier in the week about the Razorbacks' coaching vacancy, Leach officially hopped off the coaching carousel Thursday morning, agreeing in principle to a contract extension that will keep the offensive guru in Pullman through the 2024 football season.

Three days after a social media spoof indicated Mike Leach had accepted a position at Ole Miss, Washington State's athletic department unveiled a graphic of its eighth-year head coach - the text reading "Extended through 2024".

Both Campbell and Leach were thought to be on the short list of candidates that Arkansas athletics director Hunter Yurachek was considering.
