Get off the stick Sandy

Get off the stick Sandy Post Rating (1 vote)


Noticed Josh Hill's tweet demonstrating angst about the slow process of finding Tedford's successor.

Taking a look at the list of apparent leading candidates posted by Dan (Hot Board) and the list that Reydbj put up from espn, several of the leading candidates are tied up for the next month or so with bowl games.

Barbour said that there was an protocol that coaches involved in bowl games were off limits until their bowl game commitments had been completed. 

That would mean, no resolution until after new years or another month of chaos.  

Meanwhile, it seems that Cal's biggest commits (e.g., Hall) while saying that they are still on board are being courted by the competition and clearly it is a high barrier to get new commitments while the coaching situation is unsettled. (Yes, I am aware that Cal got 2 good commitments in the last few days, but ...)

Bottom line -- something needs to be done to get things resolved asap.

Things are happening just no one talking and the tight lips may mean a pretty decent hire

In the mean time, we will be asked to begin buying our season tickets for next year in 2.5 weeks. Will we know anything by then?

Time for Sandy to resign Post Rating (4 votes)


The damage that Ms. Barbour has done is egregious:

1) She put together the disastrous contract with Tedford that cost $7M (m/l) to get out of.
2) She is responsible for the financial disaster that is the stadium project.
3) She has padded the payroll with 15 deputy, associate, and assistant athletic directors. 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.

HC update from ESPN Insider 


Again for those who don't subscribe to ESPN Insider.


Cal still interested in Petersen

2:03PM ET
California Golden Bears
Names to watch
    • Sonny Dykes - Louisiana Tech head coach
    • Hue Jackson - Former Oakland Raiders head coach
    • Butch Jones - Cincinnati head coach
    • Mark Helfrich - Oregon offensive coordinator
    • Greg Roman - San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator
    • Derek Mason - Stanford defensive coordinator
    • Mike MacIntyre - San Jose State head coach
    • Troy Calhoun - Air Force head coach
    • Todd Monken - Oklahoma State head coach
    • Brent Pease - Florida offensive coordinator
    • Ron Rivera - San Diego head coach
    • Chris Petersen - Boise State head coach

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.

GO BEARS!

When are you going to figure out that no one works unilaterally adn in a vacuum (she, she, she, she) at this institution?  banghead   If she did the job the way you want it done, Cal would be in a bigger mess than they are now.

Re: Time for Sandy to resign 


MacIntyre beat Sonny Dykes. We need an in shape Harbaughesk type of coach who knows offense up and down.  Oregon OC would be great. MacIntyre also. Hugh Jackson? please. Young and relateable to the kids for recruiting purposes. We may not all like Pete Carroll but his style would help Cal. NO MORE BROODING MOODY COACHES A LITTLE CHARISMA PLEASEcool

The stadium will not be paid for with athletic department revenues. The athletic department is insolvent now. Anyone as cheap as me would not have borrowed all that money. This is the first time we have ever been in debt.

Re: Get off the stick Sandy 


Please stop with the Carroll references.   Seattle is in playoff contention at the moment and with a rookie QB.   They will give Carroll at least another year.
