According to Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune, Washington Offensive Coordinator Jonathan Smith and Cal Offensive Coordinator have interviewed to be head coach of Oregon State.

Eggers also reports that interim head coach Cory Hall has been interviewed and is being considered. Baldwin, 45, has spent one year at Cal; coming to the Golden Bears after having success as the head coach of Eastern Washington and winning a national title at the school. Smith, meanwhile, has been the offensive coordinator of the Huskies since Chris Petersen took over at the school, and the 38-year-old played quarterback at Oregon State from 1998-2001. Beavers Athletic Director Scott Barnes believes Oregon State will name a head coach before their self-imposed December 20 deadline.

Oregon State junior RB Ryan Nall rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Saturday's 40-24 loss to Arizona State.

Nall's mostly disappointing season continues unabated. This was his sixth game with fewer than 90 yards rushing. The 6-foot-2, 255-pound junior was a popular darkhorse preseason pick to lead the Pac-12 in rushing, but as is, he's not going to surpass 1,000 yards for the regular-season campaign unless he goes off for 231 yards versus Oregon in the Civil War next weekend.

Suspended Oregon State redshirt senior RB Trevorris Johnson practiced on Tuesday.

Johnson (5'11/226) was suspended indefinitely for reasons unknown last week. His practicing on Tuesday does not necessarily mean he will be available for Saturday's game against Arizona State. We'll have to wait until later in the practice week to find if he will be active for that contest. After transferring to Oregon State from TCU in the offseason, Johnson has rushed for 94 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries this season.
Nov 14 - 5:31 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Darrell Garretson threw for 209 yards with four touchdown passes with one interception on 16-of-28 passing in a 49-28 loss to Arizona on Saturday.

All four of Garretson's touchdown passes came in the second half, and all came with the Beavers trailing by 28 points. Still, it was nice to see the Beavers fight back in the second-half to make it an entertaining -- but never close -- contest, and a lot of that was due to Garretson. He'll hope to build on this and give the Beavers their first conference win next week against Arizona State.

Oregon State suspended redshirt senior RB Trevorris Johnson indefinitely.

No reason -- not even the boilerplate "violation of team rules" -- was given for Johnson's suspension. He practiced on Tuesday, but was not present for Wednesday's session. After transferring over from TCU in the offseason, the 5-foot-11, 226-pounder has seen 28 carries and has rushed for 94 yards and a pair of touchdowns on those totes of the rock. He's been a minimal contributor for the Beavers this season and his loss should be counted as a depth blow -- Oregon State is plenty stacked at the position with Ryan Nall, Artavis Pierce and Thomas Tyner.
Nov 8 - 6:42 PM

Oregon State junior RB Ryan Nall rushed for 35 yards on 12 carries while catching four passes for 54 yards and a score in Saturday's 37-23 loss to Cal.

Nall wasn't able to get much going on the ground, but he did augment his afternoon's work with some nice moves as a receiver out of the backfield. His touchdown came on a 26-yard scoring grab a few minutes into the first quarter. It's been an up-and-down campaign for the 6-foot-2, 255-pounder, as Nall has been held under 60 yards rushing in four contests. He's also surpassed 100 yards rushing in three contests. Up, down. Oregon State plays Arizona next weekend.
Nov 4 - 9:37 PM

Oregon State junior RB Ryan Nall ran for 84 yards on 19 carries in a 15-14 loss to Stanford on Thursday.

Nall showed why he's one of the better power-running tailbacks in the league, consistently making Stanford miss and churning out yardage. Unfortunately for Nall, he had a devastating fumble as Oregon State was trying to close out the game; giving Stanford terrific field position and allowing them to score the game-winning touchdown with just 20 seconds left. The Beavers are still winless in conference play. They'll look to change that next week against Cal in Berkeley.
Oct 27 - 12:30 AM

Oregon State has hired search firm DH International to lead the search for a new head coach for a fee of $200,000.

Yep. $200,000. In actuality, it's "up to" $200,000, and the amount of the monthly fees were redacted in the public record. There is no timetable for when Oregon State will name a new head coach at this point.
Oct 19 - 8:23 PM

Oregon State junior WR Seth Collins (health) has been ruled out indefinitely.

It's been a tough run for Collins over the last year-plus. He was hospitalized due to an illness last autumn and had a slow recovery from it, then found himself sidelined early in the current campaign with a finger injury. Now, a new undisclosed health concern. Searching for a silver lining, Oregon State is saying that his current indefinite absence is not related to last year's illness. Trevon Bradford figures to see the bulk of work out of the slot moving forward with Collins out. A medical redshirt could be in play if the junior is unable to take the field again this year.
Oct 19 - 6:22 PM

Oregon State junior RB Ryan Hall ran for 172 yards and three scores on 24 carries in a 36-33 loss to Colorado on Saturday.

Nall (6'2/237) was dominant on Saturday against the Colorado defense, using his massive frame to create holes and break tackles. This is the version of Nall that we saw towards the end of 2016, and gives the previously struggling Beaver offense a hint of optimism going forward.
Oct 14 - 7:29 PM

Oregon State redshirt senior QB Darrell Garretson headed to the locker room after taking a hit against Colorado on Saturday.

It's unknown at this time whether or not Garretson will come back into the game. If he's unable to return, Mason Moran will be under center for the Beavers.
Oct 14 - 6:15 PM

Oregon State junior WR Seth Collins (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Colorado.

Collins was listed as probable on the injury report, but the Beavers have opted to rest him up this weekend. Trevon Bradford figures to see extended work out of the slot in his absence on Saturday.
Oct 14 - 2:35 PM

Oregon State redshirt junior RB Ryan Nall (ankle) is expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Colorado.

Nall sat out last Saturday's loss against USC due to the ankle injury. He was listed as questionable on the injury report, but late in the practice week, interim HC Cory Hall said that he believed Nall would be able to play against Colorado. Nothing has changed on that track.
Oct 14 - 2:33 PM

Oregon State redshirt junior S Austin Hudson (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Colorado.

Cornerbacks Xavier Crawford (back) and Dwayne Williams (knee) are also out, so the Beavers will have to make due with a depleted secondary against the Buffaloes.
Oct 13 - 2:36 PM

Oregon State redshirt sophomore CB Xavier Crawford (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Colorado.

Crawford suffered a back injury in the loss to Washington. He missed last week's game against USC and will miss at least one more.
