Eric Kiesau Returns As Cal Passing Game Coordinator & Receivers Coach


Eric Kiesau has been named the passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach at Cal, head coach Jeff Tedford announced on Friday. Kiesau was previously the Bears' wide receivers coach for four seasons (2002-05) before spending the past five campaigns (2006-10) on the Colorado coaching staff. "We're excited to have Eric rejoin the Cal football family," said Tedford. "He did a tremendous job in all aspects of coaching our wide receivers during his first stint at Cal, and he understands what we expect of both our coaches and players. Eric has a strong work ethic, and is an excellent teacher of the wide receiver position and all aspects of the game of football." "I feel fortunate to be able to return to a place that provided some of my fondest football memories," said Kiesau. "I am committed to helping Cal consistently remain one of the nation's top football programs on the field, in the classroom and in the community." [Editor's note: It's interesting that Kiesau returns, considering it was rumored he left because he didn't like the long work hours that came with a Tedford-coached team. Perhaps there's been a relaxation of the stringent work policies, making it easier for Kiesau to decide to leave Colorado for Cal.]
