Jeff Tedford and Sandy Barbour Statements on Cal Coaching Staff Changes
BERKELEY – Cal head coach Jeff Tedford and Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour released statements regarding changes to the Cal coaching staff following the recent departures of defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi and passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Eric Kiesau.
HEAD COACH JEFF TEDFORD
“Tosh and Eric have decided to take other jobs, and we wish them the best. When people have career opportunities they make decisions based upon a wide array of reasons that are important to them. We appreciate their contributions to Cal football, and we exhausted all of our resources to try to retain Tosh and Eric within the confines and continuity of our coaching staff, but both chose to take advantage of new opportunities. We will proceed to replace them with quality coaches who will continue to stand for what the University of California and our football program represent, just as Tosh and Eric did.”
DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS SANDY BARBOUR
“Tosh and Eric are outstanding football coaches that did a terrific job during their tenures on the Cal staff. We certainly valued everything they brought to our football program and appreciate their time with us. We did all we were able to do to have them remain at Cal and appreciate our community’s willingness to assist in that effort. We remain excited and confident about the direction of Cal football under the leadership of Jeff Tedford.”
