FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Fresno State has let go coach Pat Hill after 15 seasons at the school.

Athletic Director Thomas Boeh made the decision Sunday, a day after the Bulldogs finished a 4-9 season with a 35-28 loss at San Diego State.

Hill built Fresno State into one of the top programs outside the major conferences early in his career with the mantra of playing anybody, anywhere, anytime. But he struggled to maintain that level of success in recent years. He had a 40-41 record over his last 81 games, beginning with a 50-42 loss to then-No. 1 Southern California in 2005.

Hill finished his tenure with a 112-80 record and went to 11 bowl games.
