Bill Doba, A Class Act To The End

As expected, Bill Doba got the boot today. I wish him a good retirement. He was a true gentleman, which distinguished him from the last two coaches we had here.

As one would expect, his goodbye was pure class.

"I've been lucky as hell ... it's been a great ride," Coach Bill Doba said, adding that he was happy to have spent the last 19 years in Pullman helping coach a Pac-10 team.

Following brief remarks by WSU Athletic Director Jim Sterk, Doba thanked the university, his family, the coaching and support staff as well as former university president Lane Rawlins and Sterk. Doba said he was leaving with "no animosity, no regrets".

"I hope to be remembered a player's coach," Doba said.
