Eastern Washington coach Mike Burns' debut turned out to be a season he would most likely want to forget. The Eagles, behind one of the Big Sky's best players in Marc Axton, where predicted to contend for a league title, but plummeted to depths not seen in Cheney in several seasons. Burns took over for Ray Giacolletti, who is now roaming the sideline at the University of Utah.
