Tommy Birch at The Des Moines Register gets the scoop on the newest addition to Iowa State football: former Washington State head coach Paul Wulff.

As Birch writes, in part:

Former Washington State head coach Paul Wulff joined Rhoads' staff Thursday, and will be a staffer for at least the remaining five games of the season.

A source close to the Iowa State program told The Register that Wulff is a volunteer assistant - he won't be paid.

Wulff was the head coach at Washington State when new Iowa State offensive coordinator Todd Sturdy was calling the plays in Pullman. He last served as offensive coordinator at South Florida in 2014.

As Birch notes, no one knows what Wulff will be doing with the offense but his experience as an offensive line coach and an assistant with one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL should carry over in Ames. The addition of Wulff to the staff seems to give credence to the belief that Paul Rhoads wants a bigger return to Iowa State's roots with a strong running game.

We'll have more as this story develops.
