Fresno State - Anyone, anywhere, anytime, just no longer at Fresno State for Coach Pat Hill. The man who put Bulldog football on the National map was fired Sunday by the school’s administration following a losing 4-9 season, the worse in Fresno State history. Monday Hill met with the media for a 15 minute emotional talk on his fifteen year tenure as Fresno State’s head football coach.

Hill took his seat at the podium in a green shirt and black jacket. The only red was in Hill’s eyes and a couple wounds on his right hand. He told the media he would not answer any questions or give any interviews. He has always answered the media’s questions but for today's press conference, when he was done he was done.
