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.
