The Godfather Tedford is responsible for Lane Violation?


Maybe everybody else knows this, but I was reading an L.A. Times article about Lane Kiffin's hiring at USC and was struck by this nugget:

Kiffin then moved on to Fresno State, 
were circumstances prompted him to begin coaching while still in school.
 Before his senior year, with future NFL quarterback Billy Volek set to 
start ahead of him and future NFL No. 1 pick David Carr coming in as a 
freshman, Kiffin was summoned to the office of offensive coordinator 
Jeff Tedford.
Tedford's proposal: that Kiffin become a 
student assistant – an offer quickly accepted and wholeheartedly 
embraced.
"He always had input and always had an 
opinion on things, sometimes too much so," Tedford, who is now 
California's head coach, says with a laugh. "I would have to tell him, 
‘Be quiet' -- though not that nicely."

I guess not all Tedford quarterbacks go on to be first round draft picks in the NFL, some go on to head the Evil Empire of the Pac-10.  With Bellotti's buyout at Oregon and Carroll's second attempt at the NFL, can we rightfully claim Tedford as the Dean of Pac-10 football?

The opinions expressed in a FanPost are, in every way, reflective of the opinions of every California Golden Blogs Marshawnthusiast. Moreover, they are reflective of every employee of SBNation, including Tyler "Blez" Bleszinski.
