Defensive Staff Restructured

Cal head coach Sonny Dykes announces a restructuring of the defensive staff.

California head football coach Sonny Dykes announced a restructuring of the Golden Bears' defensive coaching staff on Wednesday. Defensive coordinator Andy Buh has been reassigned as a position coach, while defensive tackles coach Barry Sacks and defensive backs coach Randy Stewart will not return in 2014.

"Defense is a critical part of the equation in winning championships," Dykes said. "I owe it to our student-athletes to provide them with the best conditions for success, both on and off the field, and I am committed to hiring coaches who will develop our players to their fullest potential while being excellent teachers in all aspects of the game. I will look to hire a defensive coordinator with significant experience in that role who can lead our defensive unit to success in one of the most prolific offensive conferences in the country."

Last week, a source told BearTerritory that Dykes would wait until after bowl season to find a new defensive coordinator, who will likely come from a bowl team.
