If you didn’t see the update on the blog post about the Oregon State football team’s probable new DB coach here, the word from the Beavers is that an announcement should/could come at the end of the week.
Official hiring is always slow due to HR paperwork. I’ll have more on Rod Perry as it comes available soon.
A while back I was told that the practice fields were going to have turf installed with light poles around the field and the Reser Stadium turf was going to be redone this offseason.
That’s still going to happen, but not until the spring. Plans are still being finalized. They’ll probably start with the practice fields. It shouldn’t interfere with spring practice because there’s the indoor center and stadium.
RB coach Chris Brasfield and OL coach Mike Cavanaugh were honored for their recruiting prowess this week.
Brasfield was chosen as one of the top-50 recruiters in the nation by 247sports.com. Cavanaugh was named one of the top-10 recruiters in the Pac-12 by Rivals.com.
And if you missed it, former San Diego Chargers and Washington State QB Ryan Leaf called OSU coach Mike Riley an idiot, and then I saw on Twitter someone got him to apologize.
I was in San Diego when Riley coached the Chargers and Leaf was there. Leaf is the epitome of the pot calling the kettle black with that statement. Leaf was media comedy gold for years.
The 6.81 seconds in the 60 meters at Washington last month by WR Brandin Cooks is the 13th best time in the country. Not bad for a part-time track participant.
And check out this video from the recruiting dinner from last week.
