HCA: A Bill Moos interview

Bill Moos talks facilities, football and more.

WSU Athletic Communications

If you are a Cougar Athletic Fund member you likely received the latest edition of Cougars Quarterly recently. One of the features in this installment is an interview with WSU athletic director Bill Moos which is also available online.

Future facility projects seem to be a common topic among WSU fans and Moos addressed his plan for the future.

CQ: What future facility developments can Cougars expect to see?

Moos: We’re getting cost estimates for a baseball clubhouse and an indoor practice facility. The latter is very important because it helps all of our sports, especially the ones that train and compete outdoors. We’re also getting cost estimates for our soccer facility, which is desperately in need of improvements. In addition, we have some ambitious goals in Beasley Coliseum. Though we have made some progress there, primarily in branding, we need to address locker rooms, the training room, and the concourses. I would love to have everything done in five or six years from the time I started, which means we have two or three years left. I think we can do that. Again, it’s going to entail a lot of people getting involved and supporting our plan.

Moos also talked scheduling, specifically weekday games. As you may or may not know, teams must play two weekday games every three seasons under the new Pac-12 media rights deal. With the Friday Apple Cup last season and the Thursday game against ASU this season, WSU will have fulfilled its requirement. Theoretically, that means the entire home schedule next season, including games against USC, California, Oregon and Washington should be played on Saturdays.
