Two big announcements out of Fresno State on Thursday; Pat Hill says he has withdrawn his name from consideration for the coaching job at the University of Washington, and the Bulldogs will be playing in the New Mexico Bowl on December 20th.
Hill said in a news release that it's in the best interest of his players and the team for him to stay at Fresno State. This past Sunday, Hill confirmed that he had interviewed for the job.
At a news conference at Fresno State, the team was formally invited to the New Mexico Bowl, which will be played Dec. 20th at University Stadium in Albuquerque. It's the 9th bowl game for the Bulldogs in the past 10 years, but the first time they will play the New Mexico Bowl. The team's opponent has not been announced yet, but the speculation is that it will be Colorado State.
