BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the decision says California has fired coach Jeff Tedford after his worst season in 11 years with the Golden Bears.
The decision will be announced at a press conference Tuesday afternoon, the person said on condition of anonymity because the announcement hadn't been made.
Tedford engineered an impressive turnaround at Cal after taking over a one-win team following the 2001 season. He won a school-record 82 games and a share of a conference title but ended his tenure with a mediocre run.
The Bears lost their final five games this season, finishing 3-9 for their worst mark under Tedford's leadership. Tedford is still owed $6.9 million over the final three years of his contract.
