Matt Beck spent three seasons on the Cal football staff working with the offense as a graduate assistant (2009) and administrative assistant (2007-08).
Beck was a four-year letterwinner and two-time captain during a four-year playing career at Cal (1996-99), tallying 239 career tackles and 48.0 tackles for loss (seventh all-time at Cal when he completed his athletic eligibility). The three-time All-Pac-10 selection entered his senior season as one of the nation's top-rated linebackers, but had his collegiate career cut short by a broken foot after two games.
Prior to returning to Cal, the Grass Valley native spent two seasons as the defensive ends coach at City College of San Francisco, helping the Rams to a pair of Northern California titles.
Beck was on injured reserve with the St. Louis Rams in 2000. He joined the coaching ranks in 2003 with the nationally recognized De La Salle High School program, helping the team to a national championship in his first season.
