UPDATE: It may only be a matter of time before Louisiana Tech's Sonny Dykes is named Cal's next head football coach.
"I'm told LaTech's Sonny Dykes is a finalist for the Cal job, but the Bears are still trying to entice Boise State's Chris Petersen for job," Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman tweeted.
Petersen again denied interest in the position last week.
The other primary candidate is Kent State's Darrell Hazell who interviewed for the position Sunday according to ESPN college football reporter Brett McMurphy.
UPDATE: A former NFL head coach appears to be the initial leader to replace Jeff Tedford as Cal's head coach.
"(Hue) Jackson, the one-time Oakland Raiders head coach, is getting a strong push by many Cal insiders, according to multiple sources," BruceFeldman of CBSSports.com reported.
Jackson will reportedly be in Berkeley this week.
"Sources say that Jackson will be coming in to interview with Sandy Barbour this coming week," BearTerritory.net reported. "A Cal representative said that they will not have any comment on this, nor will they until a new coach is announced
Another NFL candidate could also take the reins of Cal's football program.
"(Greg) Roman, one of Jim Harbaugh's top assistants with the San Francisco 49ers, also is seen as a strong contender for the Cal job," Feldman wrote.
Jackson's opportunity as a head coach in the NFL has come and gone. Roman, meanwhile, will interview for multiple NFL head coaching vacancies after the season and is more likely to go that route.
After a couple days of discussion between Cal head coach Jeff Tedford and the school's president Sandy Barbour, the institution decided to go into another direction.
And it didn't take long for Cal to start its search. The school already has early candidates at the top of its list.
"We're told intermediaries have been used to gauge the interest of Cincinnati's Butch Jones," 247Sports.com wrote. "Stanford (defensive coordinator) Derek Mason and Oregon (offensive coordinator) Mark Helfrich are expected to be serious candidates."
Jones is already expected to be in consideration for both the Tennessee and Kentucky vacancies. And Helfrich may be in line to replace Chip Kelly as Oregon's head coach if the NFL comes calling for Kelly.
Other early replacement candidates should include San Jose head coach Mike MacIntyre, Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun, Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes, Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken, Utah State head coach Gary Andersen and Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease.

Most recently she added an "executive associate athletic director for advancement". 4) She tried to eliminate rugby and baseball. Rugby had been financially self-sufficient for many years before then. When you cannot do the job that you are paid to do the honorable thing is to resign.
