(Former WSU Football Player Bill Moos)

PULLMAN, Wash. - Former WSU Football Player Bill Moos says he is interested in becoming the next athletic director at his alma mater after a 24 hour interview that included meetings with the University president and administrators in the athletic department.

"I don't need this job," he said.  "I'm here because I want it, but it has to be right for (me and the University)."

Moos told a room filled with athletic department supporters and members of the media that he's been the athletic director at 2 other universities, "but I only have one alma mater."

During an hour-long public meeting scheduled to give Moos the opportunity to address members of the WSU community, he spent much of his time describing how much he loved the University.

WSU President Elson Floyd said his office was inundated with phone calls and e-mails urging him to hire Moos since former athletic director Jim Sterk resigned on Friday.

Moos was previously the athletic director at the University of Montana and the University of Oregon before retiring to a ranch south of Spokane.

He signed a non-compete clause when leaving Oregon and said it has limited his ability to pursue other athletic director jobs, including one at the UNLV.

"We're addressing that as we speak," he said

President Floyd said he received so many calls about Moos that he needed to evaluate Moos as a candidate before even considering anyone else.

President Floyd said he hopes to make a decision about whether Moos is a good fit for the University by the middle of next week.
