BERKELEY - Cal head coach Jeff Tedford and preseason All-American linebacker Mike Mohamed will participate in a series of activities for a bi-coastal Pac-10 Media Day running this Tuesday-Thursday, July 27-29.
Tedford and all of the Pac-10's head football coaches will be at a national press conference to be held at the W New York hotel in Manhattan on Tuesday at 2 p.m. PDT. Later that evening, the group will have dinner with the ESPN GameDay crew and other ESPN personnel at a private location. The conference's head coaches continue to meet with national and east coast media members on Wednesday morning, before traveling to ESPN in the afternoon to go through a series of appearances on various ESPN shows and conduct additional interviews.
"The Pac-10 conference is one of the top of the football leagues in the country," said Tedford. "It is important that we do everything we can to promote our brand of football and create opportunities to increase our national media exposure. This media tour on the East Coast is one vehicle to accomplishment that."
On Thursday, Mohamed will join Tedford for the annual Pac-10 Football Media Day, which will be held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the first time. The event runs from 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., with the duo being interviewed in a press conference setting at 10:45 a.m. PDT.
Cal opens its 2010 season vs. UC Davis on Saturday, Sept. 4. The upcoming campaign also includes visits from Arizona State, Colorado, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Washington during a seven-game home schedule.
