Justin Wilcox will be looking for new offensive coaches in the 2022 season.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5230gFnFYU My reaction to this news. Lets go kick some Furd ass this weekend. Fire me up.
Had to happen and happen before the season ends.
Cal needed to fire the OC now in order to have enough time to get a new OC, ideally in Dec / Jan.
The main reason is to have the new OC try to convince the skill players to stay.
Now that only works if we hire a young, innovative, up and coming OC to peak their interest. Someone who constructively conflicts with Wilcox to push his conservative boundaries.
A little tension in the system is good.
4 games too late but I’ll take it.
Good decision but this timing is so dumb. Should have fired him weeks ago now we have a new play caller for the big game.
Bout fricking time. My wife, a Cal grad, who leads a state agency of 2,000+ employees, said to me this morning that Wilcox lacks either the willpower or ability to make hard choices. Well, one of the two got fixed today, but what hope do we have in the replacements. I'm just glad for the players.
Four games too late. Let's go to a spread offense, y'all!
Very late, too late, but hopefully not to late to keep some players from tansferring.
Let's win the next two games and end the season on a high note!
This is going to be a more interesting Big Game than I thought it would be about one hour ago.
I see a lot of comments regarding who knows the plays and thus might call the O this weekend. In case you haven't paid attention this year, we should opt for someone who does NOT know these plays and instead has the players' admiration and a whiteboard.
Thank you Avi!!
It’s a start!
Action is taken.
Won't matter much who the next OC is, it will matter much who the next OL coach is.
While tardy, this was a good time to fire these 2 jabronis. Now Cal can start reaching out to other schools for permission to speak with candidates for OC and OL. Good move by Wilcox albeit a year too late.
"Whiff of the decade: Stanford and Cal
With the transfer portal, NIL and the ever-increasing premium placed on institutional commitment to football, the Bay Area teams are losing ground as rapidly as they are losing games. Yes, sure: The coaching has left much to be desired. But neither program has any chance to attain consistent success in the current environment without systemic changes that require approval at the highest levels."
Hire Bryan Harsin for OC.
Harsin coached with Wilcox at Boise State 2001–2002 and 2006–2009. Harsin is a QB coach at heart, has won championships, was a poor fit at Auburn, and I'm sure has buyout language that makes the financials work. Just gonna keep posting this till it's done.
Uncle ak, were you around when the Wilcox's team sea-change happened? Was it that double OT win over UCLA at the end of the 22 season?
Well, not exactly nephew ack. It was a bit earlier, about a week before we beat Furd.
Thank you!! Should’ve done that long time ago. Need to start Kai at QB.
