Cougars’ crimson and gray will all look alike now

So now it’s “Win the day for Pantone Matching System 19-1543 TC and 14-1159 TC?” Damn, that screws up the rhyme in the fight song. In the color-by-numbers nitty-gritty of athletic apparel, those are the digits that identify the new crimson and the new gray – well, one of the new grays – in which Washington State athletes will be swaddled in the coming years, the first peek coming Monday night at what the school called an introduction of a “department-wide brand and identity program.”

Blanchette: Doobious decision not high point

The beat goes on for Team Spliff. Washington State’s athletic department drew its line in the sand with the Pullman police Wednesday, and at the same time muddied its own code of conduct.

Moos asks to change plan

PULLMAN – Washington State athletic director Bill Moos this week notified donors to the school’s Martin Stadium Phase III remodeling project that he wants to change the plan. In a letter to the project’s contributors he let them know he has recommended to President Elson S. Floyd and the board of regents moving the project from the stadium’s north to south side, where the press box now sits.

Moos wants change in Martin Stadium upgrade

Washington State athletic director Bill Moos this week notified donors to the school’s Martin Stadium Phase III remodeling project that he wants to change the plan.

Blanchette: Moos’ silence ominous for Wulff

Since logistically they’re treating this bizarre double bye at Washington State “like a bowl game,” according to coach Paul Wulff, does that mean the school will extort itself into buying 20,000 Apple Cup tickets? So much for the fun questions. Here’s one that’s not so fun:

Moos molds big wish list for Martin Stadium

PULLMAN – Bill Moos has been in his athletic director position at Washington State University for less than a year, but that hasn’t stopped him from dreaming big. In fact, he has a vision of a Pullman utopia.

Moos sees progress in Wulff’s program

When it comes to the state of the football program, Washington State athletic director Bill Moos is surprised it’s not generating more comment. “I’m not tired of hearing about it,” Moos said, “because I’m not hearing enough about it. When I have a radio call-in show (Monday mornings on KXLY in Spokane) and there’s one (call) about the state of our football program and nine about how we police the RV lot on game day, I’m starting to feel a little bit of apathy.”

Bill Moos’ plans include football facility

WSU's Bill Moos is thinking big. Big like in a comprehensive, football-only facility in the 100,000 square-foot range that would include a new locker room, weight room, equipment storage, meeting areas and a training room.

Moos likes Wulff’s progress

When asked about coach Paul Wulff’s status, WSU A.D. Bill Moos peppers his response with terms like “most encouraged,” “solid foundation” and “building for the future.”

Cougars need Moos to deliver off-field victory

A couple of must wins for Washington State coming up. As big as they come. The Oregon game on Homecoming Saturday? Oh, no, the Cougs don’t have a prayer, unless a Pac-10 replay official is manning the security X-ray at the Eugene airport. Same for the Arizona game on Dad’s Day. No, you can write those off now.

Cougs need win at Pac-10 meetings

A couple of must wins for Washington State coming up. As big as they come. The Oregon game on Homecoming Saturday? Oh, no, the Cougs don’t have a prayer, unless a Pac-10 replay official is manning the security X-ray at the Eugene airport. Same for the Arizona game on Dad’s Day. No, you can write those off now. But the meetings of the conference’s athletic directors today and Thursday, and presidents and chancellors on Oct. 21 in San Francisco?

Bill Moos seemed destined to end up in Pullman

PULLMAN – Bill Moos likes to say all roads lead to Pullman. He says it, more than likely, because he’s lived it. He traveled the back roads to Pullman as a child. He drove the highway to Pullman as a young man. He is returning, seemingly on a red carpet, to Pullman now. When Moos assumes the position of Washington State University’s athletic director later this month, it will be the culmination of a pursuit extended back each of his 59 years.

Moos’ salary historic

PULLMAN – When Bill Moos takes over as Washington State’s athletic director sometime before May 1, he’ll become the highest-paid person at the position in school history. At Moos’ introductory press conference Wednesday, WSU president Elson S. Floyd wasted little time in relaying the particulars of Moos’ seven-year agreement.

Commandments delivered

PULLMAN – Washington State has landed its athletic evangelist, and he came Wednesday with a warning. “If you like the sermon,” Bill Moos said, “show it when the collection plate is passed around.”

Washington State gets its man

PULLMAN – Bill Moos said yes Monday to Washington State University’s offer to replace Jim Sterk as athletic director, multiple sources confirmed to The Spokesman-Review on Tuesday. Moos told WSU president Elson S. Floyd he would accept an offer, made last Thursday. Terms of the contract have not been released, though sources have said Moos’ deal will be for more than Sterk’s nearly $300,000 in base salary, deferred compensation and other income.

WSU offers job to Moos

PULLMAN – Washington State University President Elson S. Floyd offered the school’s vacant athletic director position to Bill Moos on Thursday afternoon. “He did extend the offer,” Moos said when reached by telephone. “My wife (Kendra) and I are going to consider it and, hopefully, we’ll have a response to President Floyd in the next few days.”

Intrigue surrounds what appears to be slam dunk

How is it that, on his way out the door to San Diego, Jim Sterk didn’t bump into Bill Moos moving his carton of framed pictures and potted plants into the athletic director’s office at Washington State? When Sterk went to back his car out of its Bohler Gym parking space, did he see Moos idling his rig in the rear-view mirror?

Washington St. woos Moos

PULLMAN – Former University of Oregon athletic director Bill Moos was on the Washington State University campus Tuesday night, as he and the university moved closer to an agreement that would make Moos the next WSU athletic director. University president Elson S. Floyd told athletic department staff Monday if the university is interested and Moos is interested, WSU would make a “fair offer” to the former Cougars football player concerning the position vacated when Jim Sterk left for San Diego State University last week.
