BERKELEY - Softball player Valerie Arioto, head women's basketball coach Lindsay Gottlieb and head football coach Jeff Tedford will be guests on Monday's Cal Coaches Corner with guest host Roxy Bernstein. The program airs from 6-7 p.m. on NewsTalk 910 AM live from the Paragon at the Claremont Hotel, Club and Spa.

Arioto has led the Bears to a 21-0 record and a No. 1 ranking in the softball poll. The senior has a .500 batting average and is also 9-0 with a 1.00 ERA in the circle.

In her first season as Cal's head women's basketball coach, Gottlieb led her squad to a second-place finish in the Pac-12 Tournament that concluded last Saturday and will learn its NCAA Tournament destiny during the selection show being televised live by ESPN on Monday from 4-5 p.m. PT. The 24-9 Bears are looking to earn their first NCAA Tournament selection since 2009 and the eighth in the history of the program.

Tedford's football squad opens its spring practice sessions on Tuesday as the school's all-time winningest coach in his 11th season at Cal continues to prepare the team for its 2012 campaign. After a year playing home games at San Francisco's AT&T Park, Cal will return to a renovated Memorial Stadium next season. The Bears open the season by entertaining Nevada on Saturday, Sept. 1.

The show will also include former men's basketball assistant coach/player and current radio broadcast team member John Wheeler, as well as national radio host Todd Wright. Wheeler and Wright will talk about Cal's first-round NCAA Tournament men's basketball game against South Florida on Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT in Dayton, Ohio.
