Spring Practice Primer: California Golden Bears
New coach Sonny Dykes is bringing new schemes, energy to Cal.
College football never ends, and during the next few weeks teams will be getting ready for the 2013 season in their spring practice sessions. Today, we take a look at the California Bears and what they'll be working on this spring.
Spring Practice Begins: Feb. 25
Spring Game: March 23
2012 Record: 3-9
Returning starters: 13 (seven offense, 6 defense)
Jeff Tedford is out after 11 seasons following a 3-9 record in 2012. New coach Sonny Dykes comes to Berkeley from Louisiana Tech and Bears observers are already impressed by the energy he has brought with him. A decent nucleus of talent is in place, so Dykes definitely has a chance to get Cal back to a bowl in his first season.
