Cal boots TedfordBERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Coach Jeff Tedford has been dismissed after 11 seasons at California that began with great promise and ended with a disappointing run of mediocrity.
He won a school-record 82 games, churned out numerous NFL prospects and spearheaded a facilities upgrade highlighted by a $321 million stadium renovation. But the Golden Bears capped this year's 3-9 campaign with a five-game losing streak.
