Two people with knowledge of the decision says Mississippi State has hired Washington State's Mike Leach as its new head coach.
The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the school has not yet officially announced the move. Leach will replace Joe Moorhead, who was fired last week after two seasons.
