College football is just around the corner

The Pac-12 is holding its annual gathering of coaches, players and reporters tomorrow and Thursday. Media Day (or Media Days, in this case) is a nice chance of us reporters to speak with coaches and players from different schools and send back a few stories and notebooks for you all to peruse.

More importantly, however, it signals the end of the offseason. You will start to see a lot more Washington State football news around here, and not all of it recruiting. We'll get back in the swing of things with our morning links, and keep an eye out for some live chats.

While the offseason was slow, there were some NCAA and WSU developments that will have an impact on the upcoming months. In case you have been hibernating since the end of last football season and are just now leaving your man, woman or bear-cave, follow the jump to see what you missed.

-- After a bleak basketball season, athletic director Bill Moos dismissed coach Ken Bone with two years left on his contract and hired Ernie Kent. Curtis Allen will stay on as an assistant coach.

-- Backup quarterback Austic Apodaca transferred, and Tyler Bruggman recently followed him out the door.

-- The Football team had its Spring Game at Joe Albi Stadium. Here are three Cougs who stood out.

-- Deone Bucannon was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the first round of the NFL Draft. He was the first Cougar drafted that high since Marcus Trufant.

-- Former WSU quarterback and fan favorite Jason Gesser joined the Cougars IMG radio team, replacing Shawn McWashington.

-- EA Sports' college football video game is no more.

-- WSU finally opened up its Football Operations Building and it's a big'un.
