San Jose State hired Idaho DB coach Aric Williams to serve in the same capacity.

Williams had been with Idaho for the past three seasons. He helped guide the secondary to a program-record 17 interceptions during the 2016 campaign. Prior to his job on staff with the Vandals, the former Oregon State corner worked as an assistant at Montana (2010-14).

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that San Jose State LB Frank Ginda did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Per Pauline, several surprise offensive linemen received invitations, which has pushed "a number of draftable linebackers" off the NFL's list for Indianapolis. Ginda is apparently among that number. It's unfortunate for the 6-foot, 245-pound San Jose State standout, who likely would have tested extremely well. Pro day now becomes that much more important for Ginda. He's looking to lock down a Day 3 selection.

Former Oregon State OC Kevin McGiven will be the new offensive coordinator at San Jose State.

McGiven spent the last three years with the Beavers; three of them as quarterback coach, and the last two as offensive coordinator. He was not retained by new head coach Jonathan Smith. McGiven will work under San Jose State head coach Brent Brennan, who also coached at Oregon State working with the wide receivers.

San Jose State picked up a verbal commit from 2018 three-star LB Isaak Togia.

Togia is a quality get for the Spartans; a linebacker who had offers from schools like Texas A&M, Washington State and Texas Tech, and at one point had significant interest from Notre Dame and Washington. If San Jose State is going to turn things around, they're going to have to get athletes like Togia.

San Jose State junior LB Frank Ginda will forego his final year of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

NFL Draft Bible had reported as much near the end of November. Ginda made it official on Friday. The 6-foot, 245-pounder was a first-team All-Mountain West performer this season and earned that designation courtesy of a mind-bending statistical campaign in which he recorded 173 tackles -- tops in the FBS and the second-most for a season since 2006. According to the little birdies of Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, Ginda is "a workout warrior, and [Pauline's sources] expect him to be one of the top performers and testers at his position during NFL Scouting Combine held in Indianapolis in late February." Pauline's outlet currently stamps the linebacker with a grade for Rds. 6-7, though top-flight athletic talents such as Ginda can sometimes find themselves skyrocketing up boards during the evaluating process.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that Kent State will hire San Jose State OC Andrew Sowder to serve the same capacity.

Sowder has been on staff with San Jose State for one season. He was working as Texas' wide receivers coach the previous season. Given past experience in the systems at Baylor and Bowling Green, you can expect Kent State to attempt to open things up under his watchful eye.

San Jose State junior WR Tre Hartley caught seven passes for 109 yards in a 20-17 victory over Wyoming on Saturday.

Here's how surprising this win was: Not only was San Jose State winless in conference play, they had played only one game that was within two (2) scores. Hartley was a big part of that win, making plays in the passing game and going over the century mark for the second straight week. San Jose State finishes the year 2-11.

San Jose State junior LB Frank Ginda will declare for the 2018 NFL Draft, according to NFL Draft Bible.

"I knew this is what I wanted to do. This is my dream," Ginda said in November. "...I wanted to help my family through all the hard work they put throughout my entire life." The inside linebacker has experience behind odd and even man fronts and has been ridiculously productive over the last two seasons.

San Jose State redshirt sophomore WR Bailey Gaither caught eight passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in a 54-16 loss to Utah.

If there's been one constant in the San Jose State offense, it's been Gaither (6'1/183). He was the one Spartan who looked like he belonged on the field with Utah on Saturday, especially on his 47-yard touchdown from Josh Love to bring SJSU to within 17 at 30-13 with 46 seconds left in the first half. The Spartans have played a brutal schedule but Gaither has still produced. He should put up even bigger numbers once conference play begins.

San Jose State redshirt freshman QB Montel Aaron will start against Texas on Saturday.

Josh Love started for the Spartans against South Florida in their season-opener, but it was Aaron who saw almost all of the work in their win over Cal Poly this past weekend. The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder completed 11-of-17 passes for 183 yards and a trio of touchdowns in the victory.

San Jose State redshirt freshman QB Montel Aaron completed 11-of-17 passes for 183 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 34-13 win over Cal Poly.

The Spartans trotted out redshirt sophomore QB Josh Love to start the season-opener against South Florida last week, but opted to turn to Aaron for Saturday's contest. The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder took a little while to settle in -- San Jose State did not score in the first quarter -- before he connected on an 18-yard touchdown pass to JaQuan Blackwell with 9:18 remaining before halftime. After the teams emerged from their respective locker rooms for the third quarter, he would go on to toss two more touchdown passes to slowly salt the game away. San Jose State will tango with Texas next weekend. Our money would be on Aaron to start that contest over Love.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks San Jose State junior Josh Oliver as the class' No. 5 underclassmen tight end.

Oliver caught five passes for 51 yards in last week's opener against USF. He didn't see much action in the passing game the past few seasons, but that'll change in San Jose State's new pass-happy scheme. Expect a breakout campaign.

San Jose State redshirt sophomore WR Bailey Gaither caught six passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-22 loss to USF.

Gaither (6'1/183) was an immediate statistical beneficiary from San Jose State's shift to the Air Raid. He hauled in a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter and averaged a smooth 16.7 yards per reception for the game as a whole. A year ago, Bailey caught just four passes for 43 yards and a touchdown. He'll try to build on Saturday's strong performance when the Spartans take on Cal Poly next weekend.

San Jose State redshirt sophomore QB Josh Love completed 18-of-36 passes for 192 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in Saturday's 42-22 loss to USF.

Love and the Spartans put a scare into USF in the first quarter, taking an early 16-0 lead after a pair of touchdown passes by Love. The Bulls would go on to outscore San Jose State 42-6 the rest of the way. Once the game started to get away from Love and company, Montel Aaron took over at quarterback and finished out completing 7-of-18 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. Both quarterbacks figure to continue to see work to varying degrees early in the season. San Jose State will take on Cal Poly next Saturday as they look for their first victory of the campaign.

San Jose State redshirt sophomore QB Josh Love drew the start in Saturday's game against USF.

Love (6'2/205) drew the start over Montel Aaron. In five games last season, he threw for 392 yards (51.7% completions) with a 2/5 TD/INT ratio.
