A former Fresno State quarterback is set to be named the head coach of the football program this Friday.
Jeff Tedford will be named the head coach of the Fresno State football team this Friday, according to The Fresno Bee.
The former Fresno State quarterback and Cal head coach will face an uphill battle trying to rejuvenate a program that has been nothing short of dreadful the last three seasons. After firing their head coach Tim DeRuyter on Oct. 23, the Bulldogs have continued to struggle mightily this season, with a record of 1-9 on the year and few signs of improvement.
They rank last in the Mountain West in total offense and scoring, and their eight-game losing skid is a school record. The Bulldogs have not recorded a winning record since the 2013 season when they were Mountain West champions.
Tedford previously served on the Fresno State staff from 1992-97. He's currently an offensive consultant at Washington. He was Cal's head coach from 2002-12 and spent a year in the CFL.
