HEARD ON 95.7 THE GAME TODAY..... 


That Hue Jackson, former head coach of the Oakland Raiders, has put his hat in the ring for the CAL head coaching job. For now, he is the first and only candidate who has come forward and said that he WANTS to be CAL's next head coach. After seeing what former NFL HC, Jim Mora, has done at UCLA, I think it might be an interesting move....

Also, Glenn Suriyama of DHC International is running the search for a new coach. He found Jim Harbaugh for Stanford and Mike MacIntyre for SJSU, but of course, Sandy Barbour and the chancellor have the final say. Personally, I'm really curious about Hue Jackson...Raiders look worse for wear without him.

Good luck with the search....

Yeah Hue's a great candidate.  Ex-Raider coaches have a great track record in their next jobs.  Take Lane Kiffin for example.

Didn't Jon Gruden win a Super Bowl at his next job? Aren't Harbaugh and Shaw (and Walsh) ex-Raiders coaches too?

Re: Updated: Cal Coaching Candidate Hot Board 


Hue Jackson also said he has "not been contacted' by Cal, which is why he's expressed his open interest.

Unfortunately for you haters, it is Chris Peterson or Bob Diaco. Y'all are toast.

Sorry.  Ex-Raider HEAD COACHES.  Point taken on Gruden, but he is the rare exception.

I kinda remember John Madden having a successful career as a football analyst and as a spokesperson for his video football game after his career with the Raiders.

But not as an HC somewhere else.

ESPN Insider's take on CAL's HC search Post Rating (1 vote)


For those who don't subscribe to ESPN Insider....  I wanted to share a national perspective.

http://insider.espn.go.com/college-football/blog/_ /name/haney_travis/id/8681946/head-coaching-candid ates-every-bcs-level-job-opening-ncf

California Golden Bears

How good is the job?
With so much new blood in the Pac-12, there's still room for a program like Cal. It has a redone stadium and enough resources to keep the school competitive. The Bay Area has a fair amount of high school and junior college products, and the L.A. area is well within range.

What are they looking for?
Berkeley just needs a jolt of life. The perception is that Jeff Tedford is a solid coach whose program got stagnant after an extended stay. Tedford, Cal's all-time winningest coach, was there 11 seasons.

Candidates

Gary Andersen, Utah State Aggies head coach: It took a little while for the Aggies to get going under Andersen, but they're 10-2 on top of a seven-win season and bowl appearance in 2011. Andersen was previously the defensive coordinator at Utah, but his offensive coordinator, Matt Wells, has a top-30 offense. The Aggies' only losses this season were at Wisconsin and BYU.

Tim DeRuyter, Fresno State Bulldogs head coach: When he was working as Texas A&M's defensive coordinator, his name was regularly brought up to me as an underrated mind in the game. That's being backed up this season, his first as a head coach and his first at Fresno. The Bulldogs have won nine games, something that hadn't happened since 2007 for longtime coach Pat Hill. Hill won 10 games only once in 15 seasons.

Mike McIntyre, San Jose State Spartans head coach: Stanford's David Shaw is engineering the Bay Area's most impressive coaching job, but McIntyre isn't far behind. San Jose has gone from 1-12 in his first season, in 2010, to 10-2 this season. In fact, McIntyre's Spartans pushed the Cardinal in the teams' opener.

Chris Petersen, Boise State Broncos head coach: It's a Hail Mary, but in the past Petersen always told those close to him that he'd at least consider Cal. With Boise shuffling to the Big East, whatever that will mean, maybe it really is the time for Petersen to consider his options. Oregon might still interest him, but if Chip Kelly does leave, the Ducks already have a logical internal candidate in offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich. It sure would be intriguing to see what Petersen could do at Cal.

Greg Roman, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator: This might be the most ideal landing spot for Roman, who is working not too far away from the Berkeley campus. Learning from Jim Harbaugh worked well for Shaw. That might be enough for an AD to look Roman's way. The fact that the Niners' offense is suddenly explosive with Colin Kaepernick at QB is a cherry on his résumé.

GO BEARS!
