The redesign followed a yearlong effort between the WSU athletic department and Nike.

Crimson and gray just got a lot grayer.

The Washington State Cougars unveiled new uniforms for all their sports Monday night in Spokane and the highlight has to be the new football helmets, which feature a gray option to the school’s traditional crimson.

The redesign followed a yearlong effort between the WSU athletic department and Nike.

“We have what I and many believe to be the best logo in college athletics, yet we have not had the consistent look … that allows instant recognition for that brand,” Cougars director of athletics Bill Moos said in a news release.

The look will incorporate new crimson and gray colors along with new lettering and numerals that will be identical in all sports.
