Washington State football has hired an assistant from the University of Toledo to replace cornerbacks coach Kenny Greene.

The new WSU assistant is 38-year-old David Walkosky, who was on the Toledo staff for eight seasons. He completed his second season as secondary coach last fall and has been special-teams coordinator since 2003.

Head coach Bill Doba called Walkosky "impressive."

"He fits our needs perfectly as we needed an emphasis on special teams and he has a passion for special teams," Doba said.

Special teams were a weakness for last season's 6-6 team. Special-teams coach Kelly Skipper departed for the Oakland Raiders four months ago. Doba then divided duties among four coaches. Greene was assigned punt returns, and Walkosky is likely to inherit the assignment.

The new Cougars coach is a native of Steubenville, Ohio, and went to Toledo as a walk-on and earned a scholarship.

Greene was fired last month and no public reason has been given. His departure now is described as a resignation.
