Cal football coach Jeff Tedford promised to evaluate every aspect of his program following a disappointing 7-6 season, and it appears he isn't wasting much time making some changes. Tedford is believed to have fired wide receivers coach Dan Ferrigno and defensive backs coach R. Todd Littlejohn. A source said the moves weren't official yet, but Ferrigno confirmed Friday he was departing. "I'd just like to pursue some other things. I'll leave it at that," he said.
Ferrigno, 54, has over 30 years of coaching experience. He's been on Cal's staff on three separate occasions -- 1980-81, 1996-99 and the past two seasons. Littlejohn, 42, joined the Bears last season and also has coached at UCLA, Syracuse and San Jose State. Cal went 6-6 during the regular season after starting the year 5-0 and moving up to No. 2 in the national rankings. The Bears had to beat Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl to avoid Tedford's first losing season in six years at Cal.
