Based on the timing of the previous report and this announcement, it’s possible that the firing of Sonny Dykes and OL coach Brandon Jones played a role in Cochran’s decision.
Head coach Justin Wilcox released this statement:
“We thank Aaron Cochran for the contributions he made during his four years with the Cal football program and congratulate him for being on track to earn a Cal degree in May. We wish him the best in his future endeavors both on and off the field.”
