Grinch considering leaving WSU, Huard says

DYLAN GREENE, Evergreen sports editor

ESPN analyst Brock Huard said on 710 ESPN Seattle this morning that defensive coordinator Alex Grinch is considering multiple job offers, including from two schools in the Southeastern Conference.

Huard also said he would be surprised if Grinch stayed at WSU.

The two SEC schools are Texas A&M University and University of Arkansas. Both schools recently filled their head coach vacancies.

Although, FootballScoop reports that Grinch was never offered the Aggies defensive coordinator position.

Grinch has spent the past three seasons as the Cougars DC. WSU’s defense is ranked No. 15 nationally in total defense and leads the Pac-12 in turnovers forced with 27.

Prior to arriving in Pullman, Grinch spent three seasons as the safeties coach at University of Missouri, a team in the SEC, under the leadership of former Tigers Head Coach Gary Pinkel. Missouri went 23-5 and captured two SEC East Division titles during his time there.

Huard played quarterback at University of Washington from 1995-1998 and multiple seasons in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts.
