WSU’s athletic department’s deficit ballooned to more than $50 million the past several years [AD Bill Moos] was at the helm, and in 2018, it grew another $9 million…

This is in addition to the university’s $30 million deficit outside of athletics that has already led to budget cuts. Oh, and the school now needs to take on a $30 million project to install a computer system so employees can be paid on time, among other crucial university functions.

… The university tried punching above its weight in the Pac-12 by building a shiny new football operations building and hiring expensive coaches.

… Many are still mourning the loss of the university’s performing arts program due to budget cuts.

They don’t come no dumber than WSU.

    Bill Moos was University of Oregon’s AD prior to landing at WSU. U of Owe didn’t want him. Just sayin…..

    In fairness, Mr. Moos didn’t want U of Owe to build the Matt Knight Arena, the most expensive such boondoggle at a university..,,,

    UD, Speaking of WSU, a year or so ago, you had a post about the the WSU football players who were accused of breaking a student’s jaw. Do you know whatever happened to them. I couldn’t find anything on it

    AYY: I’ve occasionally tried updating the story, but haven’t found anything. My guess is that it all went private very quickly and quietly, with a lawsuit and a settlement.
