Fresno State redshirt junior WR KeeSean Johnson caught seven passes for 120 yards in a 66-0 victory over Incarnate Word on Saturday.

Johnson was one of the bright spots for Fresno State's dreadful 2016 season (66-773-6) and the 6-foot-2, 200 pound wideout built on that strong season. His long catch of the day was a 34-yarder from quarterback Chason Virgil. To say that Fresno State's schedule gets tougher from here is an understatement, but Johnson is a legitimate talent who will be the top target all year for HC Jeff Tedford's Bulldogs.
Sep 3 - 1:15 AM

Fresno State redshirt sophomore QB Chason Virgil was announced as starter for Saturday's opener against Incarnate Word.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder beat out JUCO transfer Jorge Reyna and Oregon State transfer Marcus McMaryion. Fresno State's offense was abysmal last season, but they're hoping for better in coach Jeff Tedford's new system. In 2016, Virgil completed 51.6 percent of his passes for 2,021 yards and a 13/10 TD/INT rate.

Fresno State redshirt senior WR Delvon Hardaway (knee) will miss the 2017 season.

Hardaway (6'1/192) sustained the knee injury in practice last week. "It’s unfortunate," said HC Jeff Tedford. "He came down after he caught a ball and landed the wrong way and it went out." Unless the redshirt senior receives a medical hardship waiver from the NCAA, this injury for all intents and purposes ends his collegiate career. He finishes his time with the Bulldogs having caught 42 passes for 489 yards and two touchdowns in 22 games.

Oregon State redshirt junior QB Marcus McMaryion transferred to Fresno State as a graduate.

McMaryion is from the Fresno area. He lost out on the Beavers' quarterback battle to JUCO transfer Jake Luton. McMaryion posted an 11/8 TD/INT ratio during his Oregon State career.
Aug 9 - 7:57 AM

Oregon State redshirt junior QB Marcus Maryion plans to transfer.

This announcement comes on the heels of JUCO transfer Jake Luton winning the quarterback competition. McMaryion has a 11:8 touchdown to interception ratio and started a few games for the Beavers last season. McMaryion is immediately eligible to play wherever he transfers after earning his degree.
Aug 7 - 9:48 AM

Former Oklahoma senior CB Michiah Quick will play at Fresno State for the 2017 season.

It sounds like Quick will redshirt due to NCAA regulations. Quick was dismissed in late November after injuring his MCL in October. Quick is a former receiver.

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.
May 23 - 1:37 PM

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen declined to name a starting quarterback following Saturday's spring game.

"I truly believe we have three quarterbacks who can manage the football game in the Pac-12. It comes down to who can make special plays. We’ll continue to evaluate them," said Andersen. The three quarterbacks in question, here, are JUCO transfer Jake Luton, redshirt junior Marcus McMaryion and redshirt senior QB Darell Garrettson. Looks like we will have to wait until August camp before we have an answer as to who will lead the Beavers into battle for the 2017 season.

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.

Oklahoma junior CB Michiah Quick has been dismissed from the team.

Sooners HC Bob Stoops only offered that Quick had been dismissed due to a violation of team rules. A converted wideout, Quick has not played since October 8, when he sprained his MCL against Texas. The 6-foot, 170-pound junior appeared in five games this season, but did not record any statistical production during those contests.

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.
