After letting Pete Alamar go after the season, Coach Jeff Tedford conducted a national search for a replacement to coach both the tight ends and special teams for 2010. Today, Cal announced that the search is over. Former Eastern Michigan head coach Jeff Genyk has been hired to improve upon a special teams unit that was a major disappointment in 2009. Genyk will also fill the same role as Alamar did by coaching the tight ends as well.
In a released statement, Tedford was quoted as saying, "We are excited about bringing in an experienced coach with Jeff's high level of expertise, energy and passion." In the same statement, Genyk stated, "I will work relentlessly to do everything I can to help the program continue to be successful and reach an even higher level."
