Paul Louis Wulff (born February 25, 1967) is an American football offensive coordinator for the University of South Florida Bulls. From December 2007 to November 2011, Wulff was the head coach at Washington State in Pullman, Washington. He was formerly the head football coach at Eastern Washington in Cheney from 2000 to 2007.

Wulff is notable for having the lowest winning percentage (.184) of all Washington State head football coaches.[1]

On May 7, 2012, Wulff joined former Pac-10 foe Jim Harbaugh as an offensive assistant with the San Francisco 49ers, with multiple duties on that side of the ball.

Early life and college career[edit]

Wulff graduated from Davis Senior High School in Davis, California in 1985. He redshirted his first year at Washington State before starting four games at guard as a redshirt freshman in 1986. He played on the offensive line from 1986 to 1989 under three different head coaches: Jim Walden, Dennis Erickson, and Mike Price.

Coaching career[edit]

After compiling a 9-40 record during his tenure at Washington State, during which the team never had a winning season, Wulff was fired on November 29, 2011.[2]
