PULLMAN, Wash. Longtime defensive coordinator Bill Doba was hired Wednesday as football coach at Washington State following Mike Price's departure for Alabama.

The 62-year-old Doba has never been a college head coach. He was the last remaining member of the original staff Price hired when he arrived at Washington State in 1989.

Price will coach No. 7 Washington State in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 against No. 8 Oklahoma, athletic director Jim Sterk said.
