BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Sonny Dykes pulled out a white California cap from underneath the podium and popped it on his head to accent his blue-and-gold tie and dark suit.
On his first day as Cal's coach, Dykes definitely looked the part.
Cal formally introduced Dykes as its new head coach Thursday, replacing the fired Jeff Tedford after three years at Louisiana Tech. Dykes said the past two days have been a whirlwind waiting to learn the outcome of the search ``but I'll look back and say that was the best 48 hours of my life.''
Golden Bears athletic director Sandy Barbour says she interviewed between six and 12 candidates. She says the school and Dykes have agreed to a ``term sheet,'' but she will not release the contract details until it is made official in the coming days.
