BERKELEY - Fans will have the opportunity to follow the excitement of National Letter of Intent Signing Day by visiting www.CalBears.com on Wednesday, Feb. 4. CalBears.com will provide live updates as letters are faxed and approved by the Golden Bear administration.
The first Wednesday in February is the first day of the signing period for football players. High school athletes can fax their official intent to attend a certain school beginning that day. Updates are expected on CalBears.com shortly after 6 a.m. (Pacific). Along with the news of the official signing, biographical information and video highlights of the signees is expected to be available. So be sure to visit www.CalBears.com on Wednesday morning.
Cal secured its school-record seventh straight season with at least seven wins - each year that Jeff Tedford has overseen the program after posting a 9-4 record and an Emerald Bowl victory over Miami in 2008. The bowl win was the fifth for Tedford - no other Cal coach has won more than two. Tedford's turnaround has been quite remarkable, especially considering that the Bears were coming off a 1-10 campaign in 2001 and had not had a plus .500 season since 1993.
Head Coach Jeff Tedford's Press Conference (approx. 3:00 p.m. PT) can be seen via Cal All-Access. You must be a subscriber to view this event. Yearly Subscriptions are $59.95 and monthly subscriptions are $7.95. Please visit: http://calbears.cstv.com/multimedia/cal-webcasts.html
