His dad, grandpa and great-grandpa preceded him on the Cougar football team, while his uncle and brother played for the Dawgs. Oh, and did we mention that pops also had two career moves that took him to UW as an assistant coach in the late 1990s and again in the mid-2000s? 2047 CHRISTOPHER SHAW Sat, 29 Nov 2014 02:25:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Old Coug Nwachukwu is just getting warmed up CHIMA NWACHUKWU never played a down of pro football after leaving Washington State, but he might prove to be one of the most notable former athletes to ever come out of WSU. The guy with the last name most people struggled to pronounce, the guy former WSU assistant coach Chris Ball once said he wouldn't be surprised to see become a future president, is making tracks at the ripe old age of 25. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Wed, 04 Jun 2014 18:15:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Mr. Nwachukwu goes to Washington (as in D.C.) A PRO FOOTBALL career does not await Chima Nwachukwu, but the future has never looked brighter for the Washington State defensive back who wrapped up his four years in uniform last month in the Apple Cup. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Fri, 07 Jan 2011 21:55:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Chima Nwachukwu Scout Cougs bring fire to chilly Martin practice PULLMAN – Martin Stadium has so much snow in it that inmates from the Department of Corrections were enlisted to start clearing the stands Wednesday. Fittingly, much of what they removed wound up on what will be the Husky sideline Saturday. Meanwhile, on the slick but clear Field Turf, the Cougs went at it with gusto. Big hits were all around. Plus, there was a welcome face back in the secondary. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 02 Dec 2010 07:25:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Casey Hamlett Scout NOTEBOOK: Cougs becoming a sack happy bunch AFTER LOGGING just 13 sacks last year, Washington State in 2010 is in reach of doubling that number for 2010. The Cougars have 23 sacks this season. Eleven of those have come from defensive linemen, with DE Travis Long posting a team-high four QB takedowns. 2047 the staff of Wed, 24 Nov 2010 17:38:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout WSU senior DB named ESPN Academic All-American Hot News for S Chima Nwachukwu 2047 the staff Wed, 24 Nov 2010 07:42:13 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Cougs at the head of the class BEING RECOGNIZED FOR ACADEMIC HONORS is becoming a habit for the Washington State football program under Paul Wulff. In 2008, the Cougars under Wulff tied for tops in the Pac-10 for the most honorees named to the Pac-10 Conference All-Academic team. In 2009, they did it again. This year, WSU led all schools in first team selections with seven. 2047 the staff of Wed, 17 Nov 2010 17:52:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Micah Hannam Scout Chima tackles the corner, Brink looks on PULLMAN — Safety Chima Nwachukwu went back to his roots on Tuesday. With CB Daniel Simmons' shoulder injury, the Cougs are taking a long look at the guy who has started 21 games at corner over his Washington State career. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 11 Nov 2010 17:29:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Chima Nwachukwu Scout WSU's Nwachukwu 1 of 10 finalists for prestigious award Hot News for S Chima Nwachukwu 2047 the staff Thu, 11 Nov 2010 01:37:08 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate 3 Cougar footballers earn all-academic honors Hot News for S Chima Nwachukwu 2047 the staff Fri, 05 Nov 2010 03:49:16 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Cougs are banged up PULLMAN—The number of walking wounded continued to grow on Monday during practice, with a starting wide receiver turning an ankle. The Cougs did, however, get a couple of players long on the injured list back for the full pad session. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Tue, 02 Nov 2010 20:15:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Sekope Kaufusi Scout COUGAR PRACTICE REPORT PULLMAN — If John Fullington needs a nickname, ‘the exception' might fit the bill. True freshmen don't usually play on the o-line at the Pac-10 level, let alone at left tackle. But that's exactly where he'll be Saturday when the Cougs face Stanford. Meanwhile, center Zack Williams, "embarrassed" by the trajectory of his shotgun snaps against Arizona, put in extra time on it Wednesday. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 21 Oct 2010 15:19:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Jeff Tuel Scout Wulff seeks speed, Burns moves to RB PULLMAN – Monday was a day of change, both anticipated and unanticipated, for the Cougs. As expected, the offensive line rotation was at full pitch with the season ending forearm fracture suffered by LT David Gonzales. But the coaches had another wrinkle in store, too. Redshirt freshman LB Arthur Burns made his return to the offense, and the running back position he starred at as a prepster. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Tue, 19 Oct 2010 15:00:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Arthur Burns Scout Carpenter adjusting quickly to life at safety PULLMAN – Anthony Carpenter, now back at safety from the corner spot, is making his presence known over the back 40, and turned in the hit of the day on Wednesday. Meanwhile, three freshmen were in running with the 1's at linebacker, but will that be the case Saturday? And oh by the way, let's not forget about the offense. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 07 Oct 2010 19:33:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Cougs' gamble doesn't pay off PASADENA -- It was a gamble Paul Wulff figured he had to take. Wulff, though, didn't figure it would backfire on him and the Cougs. Even worse, the WSU coach never guessed the decision would end up paying major dividends for UCLA and alter the course of the game. 2047 FORREST LEE Sun, 03 Oct 2010 02:05:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Wulff wants Cougs to bring the anger to L.A. THERE'S NO DENYING that Paul Wulff is mad. His voice takes on a degree of intensity when he's asked if his team is, in fact, angry enough to go down to the Rose Bowl and do some damage. "I'm mad enough," he said during his Thursday teleconference. "They need to be mad enough. I think they can be; I don't question this team's work ethic, I don't question that they want to. 2047 JENNIFER CHANCELLOR Thu, 30 Sep 2010 22:01:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Simmons issues a guarantee PULLMAN – Monday night practices this year have included rest and precautionary sit-downs for starters. That wasn't the case yesterday. CF.C also turned the mic on head man Paul Wulff and CB Daniel Simmons. The defensive back, after watching the film of the USC loss, described the D's performance as "sickening." He said he and his teammates are going to fix it. And then he issued a guarantee. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Tue, 28 Sep 2010 15:27:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Daniel Simmons Scout Cougs ramp up the tempo PULLMAN – A successful practice week is like a train gathering speed. It builds and builds, up to and through when players hit the field Saturday. There was a notable increase in energy on Wednesday with the Cougs, and the defense was leading the way. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 23 Sep 2010 15:16:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Chima Nwachukwu Scout Cougar D needs that 'next step' PULLMAN--As per usual on Monday nights, several players were held out of the short practice session. But that didn't stop the Cougar D from starting to put in the game plan for USC. Last year WSU played the Trojans about even on the scoreboard over the final three quarters but the last time the two faced off in Pullman, it was a beat down, and that memory hasn't faded for safety Tyree Toomer. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Tue, 21 Sep 2010 16:36:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Tyree Toomer Scout Nwachukwu is force off the field too PULLMAN -- Washington State safety Chima Nwachukwu is a four-year starter, a two-time member of the Pac-10 All-Academic first team, a and reigning second-team Academic All-American. All that, and Chima Nwachukwu the football player can't hold a candle to Chima Nwachukwu the human being. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Fri, 17 Sep 2010 14:46:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Chima Nwachukwu Scout Injuries raise questions for Cougar defense PULLMAN -- Deone Bucannon, a true freshman who has impressed on special teams and in spot duty the past two weeks, may be thrust into prime time this weekend because of an injury to senior safety Chima Nwachukwu. Meanwhile, two Cougar defensive tackles joined Nwachukwu on the sidelines Wednesday as the injury bug rears its head. 2047 BRAULIO PEREZ Thu, 16 Sep 2010 03:58:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Deone Bucannon Scout WSU faces SMU running twist on spread attack JUNE JONES STILL runs his patent spread offense, as Washington State will see when they take on SMU this Saturday. But in addition to the Southern Methodist coach's typical bevy of talent at quarterback and wide receiver, his 2010 squad also features standout sophomore running back Zach Line. 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Tue, 14 Sep 2010 21:25:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Hallston Higgins Scout Final scrimmage: First-half blues over for O? PULLMAN – Chima Nwachukwu, WSU's senior safety and honor student, isn't fazed by the pundits forecasting doom for his Cougars. "A successful season is going to a bowl," he said Thursday night after the final scrimmage of fall camp. To get there, the Cougs must substantially improve their play in first halves. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Fri, 27 Aug 2010 05:27:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Jeff Tuel Scout Chima Nwachukwu named to national watch list Hot News for S Chima Nwachukwu 2047 Howie Stalwick Thu, 26 Aug 2010 06:38:03 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Sorensen: Cougar QBs need to step it up FOR AN OLD WARHORSE like me, it doesn't take long to draw conclusions about what's happening on a football field. After watching the Cougs workout on Friday I came away with several observations. Among them: Jeff Tuel and Marshall Lobbestael need to step it up because what they're doing now isn't good enough. Here's another one: true freshman John Fullington will be starting by mid season. 2047 PAUL SORENSEN Mon, 16 Aug 2010 17:03:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout DAY 5: Full contact brings big hits, volume PULLMAN -- The first day in full pads resulted in a tie at Washington State's practice Thursday. Not a tie on the scoreboard -- a tie between players and coaches for passion and energy. The defense had a big day, with Myron Beck, Kevin Kooyman, Tyree Toomer, Chima Nwachukwu and Nolan Washington all making the highlight reel. Plus, a true frosh got in some work with the No. 1 O, and much more. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Fri, 13 Aug 2010 02:11:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate John Fullington Scout DAY 3: Speed, athleticism apparent; C change? PULLMAN -- Anyone who saw the past two Washington State football teams in action really doesn't need to come to Pullman to appreciate the difference in team speed this year. All they have to do is watch the past two years' games -- on fast forward. On other fronts, Marquess Wilson has tongues wagging, Rickey Galvin and Leon Brooks flip the switch -- and is a change in the offing at center? 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Wed, 11 Aug 2010 01:49:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Rickey Galvin Scout The Good, The Bad and The Questions: S PERHAPS NOWHERE will growth and improvement be more readily apparent to fans than at the safety position this fall camp at WSU. Indeed, a good-sized jump in speed and quality of play at safety is expected to be in the offing for 2010. But what questions still need to be answered? In CF.C's ongoing series leading to the start of fall camp on Sunday, we train the microscope on the safety position. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Tue, 03 Aug 2010 20:14:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Showdown: Shaumbe Wright-Fair vs. Samoa Samoa THEY AREN'T necessarily the most famous names to grace the Palouse, but they are -- literally -- the most unique, memorable and plain old cool-sounding monikers to have graced Cougar football. As closes in on its 12th anniversary, we dusted off and updated one of the first projects we ever sent into cyberspace: the Cougar All-Name Team. 2047 the staff of Mon, 26 Jul 2010 15:33:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Wright-Fair rumbes at 1992 Apple Cup Scout Sears dishes on Cougar safeties, corners IT ALMOST SEEMED at times this spring the Cougs didn't have four starters and four backups in the secondary as much as they had 7-8 quality guys rotating. That might not entirely be the case, said Jody Sears. But WSU, said the co-defensive coordinator, made a pretty good-sized jump in speed and quality of play over the back-forty. And one of those DBs got Sears' vote for the play of the spring. 2047 BARRY BOLTON Tue, 04 May 2010 18:52:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate LeAndre Daniels Scout
