WSU Athletic Communications

With fall camp now just a couple days away the attention around WSU athletics is focused fully on the fall sports season. That was the case during the latest episode of the Bill Moos Podcast where the WSU athletic director discussed football, the other fall sports, facilities and more.

If there was a Bill Moos bingo card, it wouldn't have taken long to for a blackout. Facilities? Check. Skin in the game? Check. Spokane? Check. Story about back in the day? Bingo.

Moos talked about the upcoming seasons and having the fall sport athletes on campus working toward the start of the season and taking summer classes. He also discussed the football operations building, specifically the new dining center which he billed as a four-star restaurant. The athletic department is also set to open an office in downtown Spokane which will include a novelty store.
