Former Boise State Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier will interview for the vacant San Jose State athletic director position Monday, Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News reported Sunday night. Wilner said Blemayier is the "only candidate" right now, according to a source.
Bleymaier oversaw the Broncos' department for nearly 30 years, including its ascension into college football's elite in recent seasons but was fired after the NCAA cited the Broncos for lack of institutional control after violations across several programs.
• The WAC is set to lose another member. Texas-Arlington, a non-football member, was set to join the WAC in 2013, but will instead join the Sun Belt. The move leaves the WAC with just five all-sport members for 2013: Boise State, Idaho, New Mexico State, Denver and Seattle. Idaho and New Mexico State are the only football-playing members.
• Former Boise State wide receiver Titus Young, now with the Detroit Lions, missed workouts because he allegedly punched teammate Louis Delmas, the Detroit Free Press reported.
• The Big East is holding its annual meetings Monday through Wednesday in Ponte Vedra, Florida. The league heard presentations from NBC and Fox Sports on Monday morning, a promising sign for a league that is counting on a lucrative television contract to keep it alive. ESPN, the current rights holder, has an exclusive window to negotiate with the Big East. Negotiations with ESPN are expected to begin in September.
