While Washington State did announce three midterm junior-college signings Wednesday, including No. 11 offensive tackle Robert Valencia of City College of San Francisco, not all of the news was positive.

Moore, a three-star offensive tackle out of College of San Mateo, has become a hot target with recruiters lately and now has offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, Fresno State, Missouri, Purdue, San Diego State, Syracuse and Utah State.

Fresno State tapped Jeff Tedford to replace Tim DeRuyter -- as 1st reported by the Fresno Bee -- knowing he's emotionally connected to the school as a former Bulldogs QB and that he knows how to rebuild a program quickly. Tedford, 55, took over a California team that went 1-10 in 2001 and went 7-5 the following season. Almost immediately thereafter, Cal became a Pac-10 and national contender. Things faded over his final four seasons, including a dreary 3-9 mark in 2012, but Tedford's work since then in the NFL, CFL and as an offensive analyst under Washington coach Chris Petersen means he's probably added some new tools to his kit.
Fresno State alum Jeff Tedford has been hired as the Bulldogs' football coach and will be introduced at a news conference on Friday.
