Marvin Sanders as Cal DC?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

I just caught this note this morning about a possible candidate for Cal's DC...Loyola High School (L.A.) coach, Marvin Sanders.

Sanders is also on the radar of Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini, having previously served as an assistant in 2 previous stints for the Huskers:

From the Lincoln, NE Journal-Star:

Now, speculation persists about Marvin Sanders perhaps rejoining Bo Pelini's program. Sanders, currently head coach at Los Angeles Loyola High School (after a one-season stint as USC's secondary coach), also is on the radar of California head coach Sonny Dykes, who's looking for a defensive coordinator after the Bears went 1-11 this season.

Bottom line, Sanders belongs in the college game.

If Sanders went to Nebraska, it would likely be to serve again as defensive backs coach, while the above link has Dykes' considering Sanders as a DC instead. Sanders was named defensive coordinator at Florida Atlantic in late 2011, but he left the following February, when Lane Kiffin brought him over to U$c for a season...

From the LA Times:

Sanders, 45, was the secondary coach at USC for one season in 2012, then was fired by Coach Lane Kiffin when the Trojans revamped their defensive coaching staff. He has coached at the college level since 1992, when he became an assistant at Nebraska Wesleyan. He has coached at Nebraska, New Mexico State, Colorado State and North Carolina.

Sanders' time at UNC was a co-defensive coordinator (shades of Andy Buh????), and his last full-time stint as a solo DC was at the University of Nebraska-Omaha from 1997 to 1999 (Div. II). While the school's athletic programs have transitioned to Division I play, that school has since dropped its football program...
