New Cougars coach Kyle Smith has winning pedigree

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) Kyle Smith has gotten right to work as the new head coach at Washington State. He's already held a couple of practices with his Cougars since being hired last week and is working to keep veteran players from leaving.

"All hands on deck," Smith said at his introductory news conference Monday. "Let's get better here."

The Cougars haven't had a winning season since 2012, and coach Ernie Kent was fired after going 58-98 over the past five seasons.
