but let's ignore my clear bias(i'll admit it
). tedford has no buyout clause and his contract runs to 2015. They could not raise enough money for their stadium and facility renovations, and from what i last heard are using the pac12 channel deal to aid in payment. where do they get the money to pay out his contract to 2015, pay for their renovations, and pay a new head coach? no big name coach will accept a job at cal. what makes you think they will get a good recruiter? their best recruiter tosh lupoi was a cal alum and wouldn't even stick with the program, he left for the same position, dline coach, to udubb.
ok i'll confess. their demise would mean one less school to compete for california recruits with and i'm bitter about what happened a couple weeks ago.
Tosh left for Wash because Wash gave him a ridiculous salary, last years recruiting class for Cal was shaping up to be amazing, Shaq Thompson, Arik Armstead, Ellis McCarthy were all set to go to Cal because of Tosh, Wash then swooped in and offered him a ridiculous amount of money for the sole purpose of getting those highly touted recruits to follow Tosh. It was a punk move by both Tosh and Washington. Cal then lost all 3 of those guys, but luckily only one of them followed Tosh to Washington.
Cal is a good job, they could find a good HC, heck, they have good coaches on their staff, DC Clancy Pendergast, for example who would make a good HC.
edit: As far as his contract goes, I think Cal will keep him until his deal is up, then let him go. Even though I think he should go after this year, because he doesn't have a buy out it would be tough.
