FSU football’s hire of Darrick Yray could improve recruiting

Before discovering his passion, Darrick Yray experienced failure.

Fresno State’s football program offered Yray his first rejection, turning down his initial walk-on aspirations. He accepted an offer to join them as an offensive analyst instead, but his four years in that role eventually ended after the university fired head coach Pat Hill in 2011.

Then Yray received an opportunity that changed his trajectory.

New head coach Tim DeRuyter retained Yray but shifted his coaching role to an off-field position – assistant director of football operations. After a four-year stint under DeRuyter, Yray left for another support staff job at Oregon State.
