FRESNO – Fresno State Director of Athletics Jim Bartko announced on Sunday that Tim DeRuyter has been relieved of his duties as the school’s head football coach. Offensive Coordinator Eric Kiesau has been named the interim head coach.

“Tim DeRuyter is a man of high character – a class individual who is a leader of young men,” said Bartko. “Over the time I’ve been here, the football program has shown it has the ability to be a product the Red Wave can be excited about, but the results have not been to the standard we anticipated and expect.

AUBERRY - At 2:30 pm on Tuesday, deputies assigned to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team arrested 26 year old Mark Cruz of Auberry.

On September 21, 2016, Cruz went to his mother’s home and while there he pointed a gun at a man who was visiting and robbed him of cash.
