The Washington State Cougars have fired head coach Ernie Kent, the university announced on Thursday. The move comes just one day after the Cougars suffered an embarrassing 84–51 defeat to Oregon in the Pac-12 Tournament opener. Washington State lost six straight outings to end the season with a record of 11–21. Kent had three years left on a contract that paid him an annual salary of $1.4 million. The Cougars will have to pay Kent $4.2 million through 2022. In his five seasons at Washington State, Kent was 58–98 overall and recorded losing seasons in all five years. Kent has a career coaching record of 383–351. The search for a new coach will begin immediately, according to the university. -Alaa Abdeldaiem, si. Read More.
