PULLMAN, WA. -- Washington State University's former athletic director Jim Sterk officially accepted a job at San Diego State University on Monday.
Now it sounds like the Cougars already have an eye on his replacement.
Bill Moos, former athletic director at the University of Oregon, appears to be the top candidate for the now vacant WSU position. He is officially scheduled to visit Washington State on Wednesday to discuss the job.
“In recent days I have received a number of messages from Cougar supporters indicating an interest in Bill Moos as a candidate for the athletic director position,” WSU President Elson Floyd said. “In light of that sentiment, I believe it is important to bring Bill to campus to allow him to meet with members of the campus community to determine the mutual level of interest going forward.”
Former Cougar quarterback Jason Gesser spoke on the matter Monday evening, saying that Moos seems like a perfect fit, considering he was captain of the WSU football team in 1972, lives in the Spokane area, and is still actively involved in WSU.
Moos is best known as the person who led Oregon onto the national scene from 1995-to-2007. He also served as the athletic director at the University of Montana for five years.
