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.
Nov 5 - 5:24 PM

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 fired head football coach Tim DeRuyter.

It was more surprising that Fresno State didn't fire DeRuyter after last season than it was them rectifying the error after the fact. As Purdue realized vis-à-vis Darrell Hazell last week, all fancies must eventually die. And boy did DeRuyter buy himself plenty of dream in his first two seasons in riding another staff's recruits to a 20-6 record and two Mountain West Conference titles. But the situation in Fresno turned dire just about as soon as the Bulldogs lost star quarterback Derek Carr and receiver Davante Adams to the NFL after the 2013 season. Fresno State is 10-24 since the beginning of the 2014 season, including 3-9 in 2015 and 1-7 this year. Bulldogs offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau was named the team's interim coach. We'd love to see a star coaching prospect like Oklahoma OC Lincoln Riley get this job over the winter. But if not -- what's David Carr up to these days?

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.

Jun 3 - 10:47 AM

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.

Fresno State senior LB Ejiro Ederaine accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Ederain's backed by some impressive numbers. The two-time second-team All-Mountain West selection has racked up 45.5 tackles for loss, a mark that's good for second all-time in the conference. The 6-foot-3, 234-pound senior's also logged 21 career sacks. This past season, Ederain recorded 97 tackles--he had three games with double-digit tackles--nine sacks and a pair of interceptions.
Jan 9 - 8:29 PM

Fresno State senior CB/S Charles Washington will play in the NFLPA Bowl.

Washington is probably ticketed for corner in the NFL, assuming he can hang, because of his frame (5-foot-11, 195 pounds), though he does offer some versatility. He started the first four games this season at cornerback before moving back to strong safety, where he started the rest of the season outside of one game (he missed the Air Force contest due to injury). Missing that game snapped his streak of 34 consecutive starts. Washington posted 40 tackles with six pass breakups.

Fresno State freshman WR Chris Pryor was arrested after allegedly making a terrorist threat via social media.

"We had approximately three hours from the time we received it to the time the threat was going to occur," added the Fresno State police chief. The social media post was anonymous, but Pryor was tracked down after describing what he was going to do and when.

Fresno State QB Ford Childress will miss the remainder of the season with an internal injury.

The injury required surgery. Childress was the Bulldogs' third quarterback to start in the first four weeks. One of sophomore Zack Greenlee, redshirt freshman Kilton Anderson and freshman Jesse Hanckel face San Diego State next. The Bulldogs are 1-3.
