    Just heard from a source that Jeff Tedford is out at Cal's coach. Players are being told now.

    His performance of late certainly warranted it. The arguement has been made that CU shouldn't be seen spending so much money on buyouts and facilities upgrades whith the State in financial crisis and tuition increasing. Cal is certainly a similar school in a similar situation, ahd they decided to bite a much larger bullet for the long term benefit.

    This should help us. Cal (who we supposedly want to be like) just ate a giant sh1t sandwich. We should too.

    Cal's AD is also deep in the red and Tedford's buyout is massive.

    Supposedly Cal actually has boosters who are going to eat most of that buyout, but we'll see.

    The are rumblings that we have enough broad based support to cover most of it as well and we dont take 15 million a year from the school to stay a float like Cal does.

    Mike Bohn. Call Jeff Tedford right now and make him an offer. Do not wait.

    The buyout will be paid by boosters and Nike. No school funds.

    As far as the AD, the size of funds borrowed from the Univ is normal for schools with such large AD's i.e so many sports. Especially sports that do so well. However, it will shrink to 5 million in 2014. Many of the non rev sports are in the midst of filling up new endowment coffers that will cover costs. As an alumn/donor, this was the right step for the university, and a major step in a new era of Cal Athletics.

    But as HC. Not as OC.

    So Cal followers: What's the deal with Tedford's performance the last 3 seasons? By any standard, he's significantly underpormed.

    From the outside looking in, he has the appearance of a guy that lost his fire.

    He does not look well. You cannot overlook the fact that he had to guide a team while accomplishing the unthinkable at Cal (at the time) convince boosters and the University to spend half a billion on football infrastructure. He is spent. I fully believe that if he takes a year off, he can come back and be successful somewhere. Maybe at CU . . .

    "The buyout will be paid by boosters and Nike. No school funds." I find it a little scary that Nike would be funding the buyout. Why, and what do they get in return?

    Because Nike paid for a part of his salary. Shoe companies run sports haha. Ask UCLA how adidas "helps" them recruit bball.

    ESPN confirming:

    I think most of us right now would kill for that kind of record and bowl record for CU. Of course in our glory days, even in the Gary Barnett era, we wouldn't have settled for that because we may have been a bit too delusional.

    Tedford will probably take a year off and then you guys can hire him in earnest, Embree is clueless and unless your administration takes a bold step in canning him now, unfortunately you are stuck with him until 2013.

    Chris Peterson, Hue Jackson (former Raiders HC, currently with Cincy) and Ron Rivera (former Bears and Chargers DC, current Panthers HC) are the front runners.

    I don't think Petersen is going anywhere.

    I don't understand the fascination with NFL coaches. Hue Jackson at least has some experience in the college game, albeit 12 years ago. (He did have a nice stint of coaching in the Pac-12 from 1992 - 2000) Ron Rivera hasn't ever coached in college.

    Maybe they want to sell a pro-style offense and lots of staff NFL experience.:smile2:

    Did Rivera go to Cal? If so, are they trying to pull a CU by going "back" to go "forward?":lol:

    No to Hue Jackson IMO. Peterson and Rivera are considered candidates. Others on the fan wish list:
    Dave Doeren
    Sonny Dykes
    Mark Helfrich
    James Franklin

    Dykes would take it if offered. He has been very vocal about going to the West Coast, at a time when it was pretty obvious which program was opening up. Just not sure the regents/donors think highly of him (beyond the field). Who knows . .

    I am now cheering lustily for Cal's unearned arrogance.
