Washington State athletic director Bill Moos took a few members of his staff on tours of football facilities at Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and LSU, and walked away with some inspiration for their very own football ops building up in Pullman.
“We cherry-picked the best features from each of those facilities, and that’s why I can safely say this is one of the best facilities in the country,” Moos told the Spokesman-Review.
“You just have everything at your fingertips. The only way for you to not be successful when you have a building like this – it’s your own fault. We are now given every possible tool we could ever need.”
The new facility is heavy on graphics, and has just the right amount of flash to impress without being absolute overkill from the looks of the pictures taken during the media tour yesterday.
Oh yeah, and the coaches have their own sauna. That seems like something that may have been on coach Leach’s wish list in the new facility.
