Cal recruiting coordinator Pierre Ingram arrested in prostitution sting, placed on leave

Cal might be looking for a new coach soon. Pierre Ingram is in deep trouble.

Harry Harris of Bay Area News Group with the story.

Pierre Ingram, the Golden Bears' recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach, was arrested after he allegedly solicited an undercover officer online and then showed up at the Motel 6 on Embarcadero.

He was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor solicitation of a lewd act, was booked, cited and given a court date to appear next month.

Ingram was hired by Sonny Dykes as part of his initial staff, was moved to receivers coach and primary recruiting coordinator after the departure of several assistants, and was an up-and-comer on the West Coast trails; he had proven to be a strong recruiter the past several seasons and landed some of our best offensive recruits. His future with the Cal program has to be very much in doubt. At the moment, he is not with the program. (At least we have an idea why the spring game was so weird!)

If Ingram was relieved of his duties, it would leave only Tony Franklin and Sonny as the two remaining real offensive minds on our offensive coaching staff, with Rob Likens and Zach Yenser departing to Kansas this past season. Cal can probably get by with the stacks of offensive talent during the season and upgrade someone like Burl Toler III to help out with our wide receiver coaching. However, Sonny will need to find someone long-term to ensure the Bears retain their upward recruiting momentum. Who knows what the next step is.
