Tracy Claeys resigns as Washington State defensive coordinator

Tracy Claeys resigned as Washington State’s defensive coordinator halfway through his second year with the Cougars.

“We appreciate Tracy’s efforts the past year and a half and wish him the best going forward,” said head coach Mike Leach.

According to a spokesperson with WSU, “Roc Bellantoni will assume interim defensive coordinator duties and Darcel McBath will assume co-interim defensive coordinator duties moving forward.”

The news comes after the Cougars allowed 38 points to the University of Utah last Saturday. The Cougs have a bye week before facing Arizona State next Saturday, Oct. 12th.
