BERKELEY - Cal head coach Jeff Tedford interviewed Wednesday morning on KNBR 680 and is scheduled as a guest Thursday at 8:15 a.m. PT on 95.7 FM The Game in advance of the Cal Spring Football Experience slated to take place at Edwards Stadium this Saturday, April 21.
Tedford was on KNBR 680's Murph and Mac show with Brian Murphy and Paul McCaffrey on Wednesday, and will be on 95.7 FM The Game on Thursday with The Rise Guys (Dan Dibley, Whitey Gleason, Mark Kreidler).
Tedford has also recently addressed specifics of the format for the Cal Spring Football Experience scheduled to take place at Edwards Stadium this Saturday, April 21.
"It will be pretty much like a game," Tedford said. "Unless something really bad happens Thursday (in practice), which we'll cross our fingers on that, we'll break up into blue and gold teams and play pretty much a game."
"I hope there's a great turnout," Tedford added. "It's going to be a great day. We're going to have some of the NFL guys back, we're going to have a lot of fan interactive things going on throughout the game, so it should be a fun festive day."
Fans of all ages are invited to join Tedford and the Golden Bears at the free event to watch practice, meet the team, take part in an autograph session, enter to win a trip to Columbus for Cal's game at Ohio State in 2012, and much more.
The event is part of Cal Day festivities on campus. Fans can enter at the South Entrance of Edwards Stadium, located at the corner of Fulton Street and Bancroft Way in Berkeley. Gates open at 10 a.m., with the team's workout slated to begin at 11 a.m.
In addition to the activities listed above, fans can enjoy the following at the Cal Spring Football Experience.
