Washington State took a step back in Mike Leach's third season, tumbling to a 3-9 record after appearing in the New Mexico Bowl in 2013. Much of the blame was put on the defense, which ranked 97th nationally. Leach fired defensive coordinator Mike Breske and hired Alex Grinch from Missouri. But there are other issues. The team rushed for only 478 yards — worst in Division I-A — and the longest run was 26 yards.
