New contract rewards Beau Baldwin’s winning ways with Eastern Washington football

Even at $240,000 a year, Beau Baldwin is one of the biggest bargains in college football. Baldwin’s 85-32 record is seventh best in the history of the Big Sky Conference. He’s also won five conference titles (while going 58-14), an FCS national championship in 2010 and taken the Eagles on several deep runs in the postseason.

EWU’s John Graham finalist for dream job at Central Washington

Eastern Washington defensive coordinator John Graham hopes to realize a lifelong dream by becoming the next head football coach at Central Washington, he said Wednesday. “When I got into college coaching, a dream of mine was to be a head coach at a place that’s near and dear to my heart,” said Graham, who is one of four finalists to lead the Division II program in Ellensburg.

Lee: Coaches accept good, bad when kids play sports

Eastern Washington University defensive coordinator John Graham has taken in three Cheney games this fall. It’s not that he has his eye on some prized recruit, but he does have a vested interest. Make that two vested interests – sons Andrew and Ty play for the Blackhawks.

Freeman fights through adversity

John Graham had high expectations for his Freeman boys basketball season coming into the season. The Scotties were coming off league and district championships, falling short of a State 1A berth.

Reaching the goal

Eagles seek ways to approach three-week break

Under the old format of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs, had Eastern Washington University survived until this weekend, it would have already played in the NCAA Division I Championship game, which was held last year in Chattanooga, Tenn., on Dec. 18. But with this year’s expansion of the playoff field from 16 to 20 teams, the No. 1-ranked and fifth-seeded Eagles found themselves locked in a semifinal with defending national champion Villanova at Roos Field on Friday night.

Szczur will come at EWU from many angles

Eastern Washington defensive coordinator John Graham has never met Matt Szczur. But just from watching video of Villanova’s all-American wide receiver, kick-return specialist and “Wildcat” quarterback, Graham figures Szczur must be every bit as good a person as he is a football player.

Eastern hosts Villanova’s road warriors for title berth

Villanova coach Andy Talley won’t hazard a guess as to how the national title his team won last fall might impact its chances against No. 1-ranked and fifth-seeded Eastern Washington University (11-2) in tonight’s Football Championship Subdivision playoff semifinal that kicks off at 5:05 at Roos Field. “I would like to think it would help,” Talley said of last year’s impressive title march, which culminated with a 23-21 win over Montana in the championship game. “But to be perfectly candid, it’s hard to know, because last year we had the luxury of sitting at home for our first three playoff games.”

Eastern gears up for offensive fireworks

Villanova has got to be travel weary, but Eastern Washington coach Beau Baldwin is expecting to get the Wildcats' best shot when the two teams lineup Friday in the FCS semifinals at Roos Field.

Matt Szczur a big challenge for EWU defense

Villanova's Matt Szczur caught a 31-yard touchdown pass, threw a 54-yard scoring pass and ran for three more TDs as part of a perfect offensive storm last week in the FCS quarterfinals.
