Coaching Accomplishments
• Spent seven seasons on the Cal football staff, including three campaigns as the wide receivers coach from 2008-10 after one previous season working with the quarterbacks in 2007, and three prior to that with the Cal offensive line as a graduate assistant, assisting with game-planning, opponent scouting and individual player development.
• Instrumental in the development of Marvin Jones, who blossomed into the Golden Bears' top wide receiver as a sophomore in 2009 with 43 receptions, 651 receiving yards and six touchdown catches, and then bettered the reception (50) and receiving yards (765) totals in 2010 while adding four TD passes.
• Coached Keenan Allen to a true-freshman record 46 catches for 490 receiving yards and a team-high five catches during 2010.
