Tim DeRuyter is Fresno State's new head Coach.


Texas A&M defensive coordinator and interim head coach Tim DeRutyer has been named Fresno State's new head coach. Unlike previous candidates, he has no direct ties to Fresno State, although he was at Ohio at the same time as AD Thomas Boeh. He has worked as a defensive coordinator at Nevada, however. He runs a 3-4 defense and has markedly improved the defensive ranking of each team he has worked at.

I would have preferred McElwain, but this is the next best thing; he's still from a BCS conference with a proven track record. To tell the truth, Fresno State needed a better defense more than anything this year. Also, in my uneducated view, a 3-4 defense may suit Fresno State's undersized D-line (Assuming they can grab a nose tackle). Okpaulago, their best remaining D-lineman I can think of, is terrifically undersized at 240 pounds (although this sack is awesome). Hopefully he can recruit well, too.

Press conference is at 1:00 PT. DeRuyter will coach the Aggies in their bowl game, but recruit for Fresno State.
