Wulff update: Fate of WSU coach could be announced today

Freelancer Howie Stalwick filed this report Sunday morning on the job status of Washington State football coach Paul Wulff:

SEATTLE — Bill Stevens, sports information director at Washington State, said Sunday morning that a decision on football coach Paul Wulff’s future with the Cougars could be made as soon as today.
 “No decision has been made,” Stevens said. “Bill (athletic director Bill Moos) said he will not make a decision until he has met with Paul, and he has not met with Paul yet.”

Wullf and Moos were scheduled to meet sometime Sunday afternoon.

Three sources with ties to the football program, all of whom requested that their names not be used, said Sunday they expect Wulff to be let go with one year left on the original five-year contract he signed with WSU.
Moos did not return multiple phone calls.
Wulff is 9-40 overall and 4-32 in the Pacific-12/10 Conference in four years at WSU. Only the 1979-82 Oregon State Beavers (3-40-1) have lost as many as 40 games in four years in the history of the Pac-12, which traces back to the Pacific Coast Conference in 1916. The 32 conference losses is also a four-year record in the league.
WSU players strongly supported Wulff following the season-ending, 38-21 loss to Washington on Saturday night at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
After the game, Wulff said he’ll meet with Moos “in the next day or two” to discuss his future. Moos, as he did last year, maintained all season that he would wait until the season was over before making a decision on Wulff.
The Cougars, forced to utilize three starting quarterbacks due to injuries, finished the season 4-8 overall and 2-7 in the Pac-12. Wulff’s previous four teams were 5-32 overall and 2-25 in the Pac-10. His first team finished next to last in 2008; the past three teams have come in last.
