In brief: Cougars reveal 2014 football schedule

college football: The Pac-12 announced its 2014 football schedule on Wednesday and Washington State shortly followed suit. While the conference has a set rotation making it possible to determine which teams the Cougars will play, the dates and order of the conference schedule were not made public until Wednesday.

The Cougars will open the 2014 season Aug. 28 at Seattle’s CenturyLink field against Rutgers University. The annual Seattle Game will also serve as Rutgers’ first game as a member of the Big Ten athletic conference.

WSU will host five conference games at Martin Stadium this season, the most since the 2010-11 season and two more than last year.

The Cougars will have two weekday games – the Rutgers game on a Thursday and Friday, Oct. 10, at Stanford.

“This is truly an outstanding schedule for our team and for our fans,” WSU athletic director Bill Moos said. “Having six games in Martin Stadium has not happened in a while and the conference slate of home games is outstanding.  In addition, playing new Big Ten member Rutgers in Seattle on the Thursday night of Labor Day weekend should prove to be attractive in regard to attracting a great crowd as well as a large national television audience.”

Indians name coaching staff

NWL: Former Spokane Indians starting pitcher Jose Jaimes will return to Avista Stadium this summer as the Northwest League team’s pitching coach for manager Tim Hulett, who will enter his eighth season.

Jaimes’ assignment was announced by the parent-club Texas Rangers on Wednesday.

Jaimes pitched for Spokane during the 2007 and ’08 seasons, compiling a 5-2 record with a 3.75 earned-run average in 55 1/3 innings. He has coached Rangers teams in the Arizona Rookie and Dominican Summer leagues.

The Rangers also named Zach Jones as trainer and Ed Yong as strength and conditioning coach. The hitting coach will be named later.
