After a dismal 3-9 season for the Cal Bears which ended in five straight losses, many placed the blame on head coach Jeff Tedford and called for his departure.
Tedford met with athletic director Sandy Barbour on Sunday, two days after Cal was blown out in its final game up in Oregon State. Speculation arose that Tedford would be fired in that meeting, but it looks like he will be staying, as Jon Wilner reports:
Have talked to multiple sources in past 24 hrs. Don’t hold me to it, but my guess is that Jeff Tedford will be back at Cal next season.

Wilner also added that if he were to return, Tedford would have to abide by several unspecified changes from his superiors.
Teford is Cal’s winningest coach in history, and is responsible for resurrecting the program after he took over in 2002. He has an overall record of 82-57, but is just 15-24 since December of 2009.
