The Fresno Bee is reporting that Freso State coach Pat Hill flew to Seattle today, presumably to discuss the football coaching vacancy at the University of Washington.

Hill had been quoted as recently as Friday saying that he had not discussed the job with UW.

UW officials are sticking to their policy of not commenting on their search for a coach to replace Tyrone Willingham after this season.

Fresno State concluded its regular season Friday with a 61-10 loss to Boise State. That dropped the Bulldogs to 7-5 overall and 4-4 in the Western Athletic Conference.

Hill is 56 years old and in his 12th season at Fresno, where his is 92-60 with one shared WAC title and nine bowl trips.

The Bee reports that Hill has a contract that runs through the 2010 season at an annual rate of roughly $1.2 million — however, there is no buyout clause requiring payment if he leaves early.

Hill becomes the second potential coach reported to have visited the campus, joining Notre Dame offensive coordinator Michael Haywood.
