Jeff Tedford Gets His Money From California After All
All good things must come to an end, or so they say. Former California Golden Bears head football coach Jeff Tedford is now out of a job for the first time in a long, but he’s still getting paid. On Monday, the school announced it reached a settlement with Tedford for the money he was supposed to be paid over the final three years of his contract. Teford was fired in November after the Golden Bears went 3-9, but he still leaves the table with a handful of Cal coaching records and $5.55 million.
Had Tedford remained the head coach at Cal, he would have been paid $2.3 million per year for the next three, but the school saved $1.35 million by reaching the settlement and sending Tedford on his way.
In 11 seasons at Cal, Tedford went 82-57 while becoming the Golden Bears’ winningest coach of all time, including most games coached, most wins and most bowl victories. So naturally, there are no hard feelings between the school and its former coach as athletic director Sandy Barbour said Teford was a great guy, “deeply cared for his student-athletes” and all that jazz. The bottom line is the man got his money, Cal is still awful (3-9 in 2012) and life must go on under new Golden Bears head coach Sonny Dykes. We’ll see how much money he ends up with when it’s all said and done.
