I suspect Cal will target Sonny Dykes first. If I were the AD I would take a good hard look at Gary Anderson of Utah State.

Anderson would be a solid coach for you guys.  Over at the Sun Devil board, speculation is that you may be able to get Vandy's coach Franklin to come over.  That would be a huge coup for your program, and would suck for us as I really like him.

The first call needs to be to Chris Petersen.  Though he has turned down many programs over the past few years to stay in Boise, maybe coming back to his N. California roots will be attractive to him.  It is a LONG shot but a call that must be made. 

He would immediately create excitement for the program and help sell more season tickets in the new stadium as well.

Here's a name to chew on:  Chuck Martin.  Who???  He is currently the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame and prior to that was the head coach of Grand Valley State in Michigan where he won two national titles in D-2 and his record there was 74-7 as a head coach.  He followed Brian Kelly as the head coach at Grand Valley State and then eventually joined him at Notre Dame.  Notre Dame has a lot of the challenges that Cal does in recruiting and retaining athletes and this guy has been the head guy at a lower level so it wouldn't be his first rodeo with the  head set on the sidelines.

I'd like to see you guy get a pro coach willing to jump back into the college mix.  How about Gruden?  You guys have the ability to recruit tougher players and he would run a tough system, but require so serious dough.

Jim Tressel anyone?  He needs a job and likely has learned his lesson.

Would prefer their DC instead.

No way on Tressel.  Gruden would come with a huge price tag and frankly would be nuts to give up his MNF job.

Bob Diaco 


Bob Diaco, the Notre Dame defensive coordinator, would be a terrific hire in my opinion. Young guy, outstanding with Xs and Os, but I could see him waiting for Iowa job to open up.

Integrity 


Notable that the first word Barbour used in press conference to describe qualities for Tedford's successor was integrity. Bobby Petrino and Tressel are the anti-integrity guys.

Petersen 


I still think Chris Petersen waits to see what happens with Chip Kelly at Oregon. More money, ridiculous facilities, less worries about academics.

But it is a call that will be made.

Thank you for the correction. Gary Anderson. Edited above.

Sonny Dykes is a great coach. He did very well in the Pac-10 already as a coordinator.

Sorry but I think Cal would be a step down for Petersen.  At best it's a lateral move, which means his tenure would last until he found a better gig.

I'm not sure it's a step down in the grand scheme of things, but Petersen has shown a considerable reluctance to leave Boise.

Cal a step down from Boise St?  With the renovation of the stadium and facilities??  Why don't you stay on your own board and not worry about what goes on this side of the bay.

That has got to be one of the MOST ridiculous statements I've ever read on any Pac-12 message board.tongue

The truth of the matter is that Chris Petersen would be a step down for Cal.  In order for Petersen to make a "lateral" move it would have to be Fresno St. or San Diego St.  The only way Petersen could step up to a Pac-12 school, successfully, would be as a replacement for someone like Chip Kelly.  In other words, a firmly established program that requires no tweaking.

The track record for Boise St HC's moving up is consistently bad.  I list, in reverse chronological order:  Dan Hawkins; Dirk Koetter; and Houston Nutt.

I rest my case.  Cal can do much better.

RE: Time to get Peterson was 2 years ago 


People need to remember that Boise State is now moving to the Big East. They are now a BCS team. They are no longer a team that must go undefeated to even get a sniff at a BCS bowl game. BSU is likely to dominate the Big East every year and be in a BCS bowl game every year. The Big East is mediocre at best. They also might sneak into the national title game a couple of times just through going undefeated. Their recruiting operation is only going to get better as a result. The time to get Peterson was a year or two ago before the conference change happened. I just can't see him saying yes to the Cal coaching position at this juncture. He has a great set up now at BSU. Didn't always used to be the case. If he moves from Boise, it will be for an upper tier position.
