Washington State's Mike Leach and Idaho's Paul Petrino could be on their way to becoming the new Hatfields and McCoys.
The coaches got into a small dustup after Saturday night's game, won by the Cougars, 42-0. In the top video, Leach shouts something at Petrino after a gruff handshake between the two. In the video after the jump, the coaches yell at each other, but it's difficult to understand what was said.
Staffs from each team then stepped in and the parties went on their merry ways.
The campuses are only nine miles apart and Petrino actually lives in Pullman. But here's the interesting part: Petrino is building a new house next door to Leach's residence, according to Vince Grippi of the Spokesman-Review.
Can't wait for those conversations over the backyard fence.
What set off Saturday night's exchange? Leach was already aggitated after receiving what is being called a "well-earned" unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for arguing with referee Michael Batlan on Idaho's last possession.
Batlan's microphone was on after he announced the penalty and he was heard telling another official, "You heard what he said, right?" The Pacific 12 office has likely heard what Leach said, too.
With Idaho nearing the Washington State end zone, Leach reportedly put several of his defensive starters back in the game. The starters delivered and Washington State had its first shutout since a 25-0 blanking of the Vandals in 2003.
Petrino, for the record, is the brother of Bobby Petrino, the Western Kentucky coach who likes to ride motorcycles.
Another oddity is the Petrino's son, Mason, is the starting quarterback for Pullman High, which defeated Moscow, 42-40, on Friday night. One of Moscow's touchdowns came on an interception of a Petrino pass by Jack Akey, the son of Robb Akey, who was Idaho's coach last year.
