Santa Rosa Press Democrat: Tedford is a "Middle-Tier" Coach

Link.

Excerpt:

Jeff Tedford: He is definitely a middle-tier coach and he is on the way down. He hasn’t been conference Coach of the Year since 2004. He is a disappointment because he once was so good — wow, was he good! — and he’s not so good anymore. His teams now have mediocre records. Last season his Bears were just 5-4 in the Pac-10 and got walloped in the whachamacallit Poinsettia Bowl.  He is a quarterback guru who can’t develop a quarterback. His teams often start the season ranked nationally and fall on their faces. This makes him seem like a national flop. You almost get the feeling he’s used up his time at Cal and the university should consider looking elsewhere.

agreed...tedford was good for turning around the program, not at taking it to the next level...much like Pelosi was good at saying no to the republicans and being a minority leader, she is terrible at crafting policy and is no good as a majority leader

Um, except Pelosi *passed* all the major legislation she was asked to (Health Care, Cap and Trade, Stimulus, etc). If that's your definition of terrible, I can understand why you'd include Tedford (the best coach Cal has had in the modern era) in that class.
