Since it’s the offseason, the California Golden Bears coaching staff has taken their brand international. Coaches like Steve Greatwood, Desmond Bishop, Tony Tuioti and Gerald Alexander have gone overseas to train some football players over in Turin, Italy!
Cal coaches have limited contact with their team during summer workouts, so it’s a good time to broaden horizons and do some overseas work.
Since the Cal assistants and coaches are not allowed to really interact regularly, most of their time right now is focused on game preparation, film review, and doing other activities, like hosting camps for aspiring football players. It appears the Bears have gone overseas to do some international outreach.
The Bears have landed in Europe. Fired up to coach up our Italian friends!— Steve Greatwood (@SGreatwood58) June 23, 2017
It's a beautiful morning in Torino, up and at me to go coach these guys!— Steve Greatwood (@SGreatwood58) June 24, 2017
Cal has had their fair share of successful Italians in the past (Giorgio Tavecchio, Vincenzo D’Amato). Chris Manderino also played some competitive football in Italy after his time with Cal.
For those wondering why Cal isn’t focusing at home, the Bears have hosted a ton of camps in Berkeley over the past month. Why not go overseas and build the brand?
