Back to football news,
OC Mike Dunbar is leaving Cal to take the OC position at Minnesota after one season. I think Dunbar regretted his decision to come to Cal for a variety of reasons:
1) Had he stayed at Northwestern, he would have been a favorite to become head coach after Randy Walker's sudden death.
2) He loves the spread offense and anybody watching Cal's offense certainly did not see a true spread or anything close to it.
3) He is a Midwestern guy and leaving home is hard.
While others are more critical of Dunbar, we appreciate his contribution to Cal and wish him well.
So who will take over now. Tightwad Hill has a great post on the topic, here. His choice is Ron Gould, current running backs coach, who would simply execute Tedford's offensive game plan. While I believe Tedford is the greatest offensive mind in college football, it would be interesting to bring in some new blood to try his hand with the offense. Someone who would run Tedford's pro style offense and add some wrinkle's of his own. No one comes to mind right now but this will be an interesting situation to watch.
