Fresno State redshirt junior WR Jamire Jordan's 713 yards receiving in 2016 ranked as ninth-most in the Mountain West.

Jordan (5'10/173) has played in all 24 games for the Bulldogs over the past two seasons, making 20 starts in that space -- including nine consecutive to close out the 2016 campaign. He finished up the past season having caught 45 passes for 713 yards and a pair of touchdowns. On those catches, he averaged a sweet 15.8 yards per reception. For the coming season, he will pair with Keesean Johnson in a receiving corp that looks to have a decent amount of depth -- Derrion Grim, Da’Mari Scott, Delvon Hardaway and Justin Allen could all work their way into the mix depending on how they perform in August camp.

Fresno State redshirt junior WR KeeSean Johnson has added about 14 pounds this offseason.

Johnson was playing at 190 pounds last season. Make that 204 pounds or thereabouts as we near August camp. "Just by adding weight, he can be more physical and do some of the things that he wanted to last year that he probably felt like he couldn’t do because he wasn’t as big," said QB Chason Virgil. "I think he’s going to be a great threat for us." This past season, a slightly lighter Johnson registered a 66-773-6 receiving line. Those 66 receptions ranked as fifth-most in the Mountain West.

JUCO junior QB Reyna transferred to Fresno State.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback heads into the summer as the Bulldogs' No. 2 QB. Incumbent Chason Virgil is leading the quarterback derby, but he'll need to fend off Reyna for good come August. "I plan on being that guy," Virgil said. "That’s something me and the coaches talked about. I plan on being that guy, being that voice, being that motivator that everybody needs."

Fresno State senior C Aaron Mitchell was named to the Rimington watch list.

The 6-foot-2, 295-pounder is a two-year starter. Mitchell's father played football at Oklahoma.

Fresno State hired North Dakota State's Jamar Cain to serve as DL coach.

Cain spent the 2016 campaign roaming the NDSU sideline. He will be taking a trip west for the coming season. He has experience as a DL coach, having coached the line at Wyoming. He also received work as defensive coordinator with the Cowboys.
Feb 5 - 4:30 PM

Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel reports that San Jose State has "reached out" to former Fresno State HC Pat Hill to fill their vacant position.

San Jose State canned HC Ron Caragher after the Spartans finished the 2016 season holding an 8-4 record. Hill's name in the subsequent search comes as something of a surprise. He has been out of coaching since Fresno State parted ways with him following a 4-9 campaign in 2011. That mark may not impress, but the Bulldogs were bowl eligible in 11 of his 15 seasons at the helm.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that new Fresno State HC Jeff Tedford will make $1.6 million per season.

Tedford will be announced as Fresno State's next head coach in a press conference on Friday. He is taking the gig vacated by Tim DeRuyter after the latter was fired on October 23. The length of Tedford's contract is not yet known. He held a 82-57 record in his decade coaching at Cal. He inherits a Fresno State squad that currently sits at 1-9.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Fresno State will hire former Cal HC Jeff Tedford to fill the same position.

Tedford is currently a consultant on Washington's coaching staff. Previously, he served as Cal's head coach from 2002-2012. His teams went 82-57 in that space. As for the outfit he will be joining, Fresno State is mired in a 1-9 season, one which cost HC Tim DeRuyter his job in October. Tedford is expected to be announced as the new head coach in a Friday press conference.

Fresno State redshirt freshman QB Chason Virgil will not return to Saturday's game against Colorado State due to a left shoulder injury.

With Virgil no longer an option at quarterback, the Bulldogs will turn to Zach Kline to finish out Saturday's contest. Fresno State is off on bye next week, giving the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Virgil a nice little window of recovery before his team hosts Hawaii on November 19.

Fresno State redshirt freshman QB Chason Virgil completed 18-of-37 passes for 303 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions in Friday's 31-21 loss to Air Force.

Virgil showed both the best and worst of his game. His three touchdown passes represented a high-water mark for the season. The same can (somewhat predictably) be said about the four interceptions. He had done well to cut down on the picks of late and entered Friday's action interception-free in two of his last three games. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound redshirt freshman has thrown for at least one touchdown in eight of nine games this season. Despite this low-simmering consistency, Virgil holds a 13/10 TD/INT ratio overall and isn't a particularly appealing fantasy own.

Fresno State redshirt senior WR Aaron Peck (leg) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against Air Force.

Peck has been practicing this week, a strong outward sign that he is trending toward game action on Friday. Interim HC Eric Kiesau said, "We’ll make that decision [on whether Peck will play] as we get closer to the game." Due to his leg issue, the 6-foot-3, 217-pounder did not play against Utah State last time out. In seven games this season, he has caught 34 passes for 511 yards and three touchdowns. The bulk of that yardage came in contests against Nebraska and UNLV. Those two games saw him pile up a combined 306 yards receiving.

Fresno State redshirt freshman Chason Virgil was named the school's starting QB.

Fresno State's success has dropped off a cliff over the last few years. Virgil was considered the favorite throughout the entire process and head coach Tim DeRuyter said the second year passer clearly separated himself. The Bulldogs open against Nebraska.

Cal graduate QB Zach Kline will attend Fresno State for his final season of eligibility.

The Bulldogs now have six quarterbacks on the roster, however, that number could diminish before the start of the season due to injuries and possible transfers. One example: sophomore Kilton Anderson recently underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder and will be sidelined for some time. Kline has a chance to earn playing time, something that has escaped him since losing the quarterback competition to Jared Goff back in 2014.

Cal graduate QB Zach Kline plans to transfer for his final season of eligibility.

Kline has been a nomad during his college career, beginning at Cal before transferring to a Junior College, then to Indiana State, then back to Cal. The move might be in response to Davis Webb joining Cal after transferring to Texas Tech.

Former Cal, JUCO and Indiana State redshirt junior QB Zach Kline will transfer back Cal.

What a ride it's been to get back to Berkeley! The former four-star prospect signed with the Bears in 2012, was redshirted and then had 82 attempts and three touchdown passes as a second-year freshman in 2013. After that, a true freshman, some guy named Jared Goff, showed up to campus. Thus began Kline's odyssey. He announced that he would transfer to Oregon State in December 2013 but had changed his mind before the summer even descended. Instead, he played at Butte College in California in 2014 and then jumped to Indiana State last season. Now, he's back where it all began. "Zach’s a great kid, popular kid," Bears head coach Sonny Dykes said. "I said, ‘Yeah, we’d love to have you back.'" Kline re-joins the roster as a walk-on, so Dykes doesn't even have to burn a scholarship on rolling the dice on a blast from the past as he seeks Goff's heir.
