BERKELEY, Calif. – New California coach Sonny Dykes is ready to start the search for a quarterback to run his Bear Raid offense.
The Golden Bears are set to begin their first spring practice under Dykes next week with one of the main tasks being to identify the quarterback to run his high-powered offense.
Last year's starter, Zach Maynard, has used up his eligibility, leaving a wide-open race that includes Allan Bridgford and two promising quarterbacks from the past two recruiting classes: redshirt freshman Zach Kline and early enrollee Jared Goff.
The inability to develop a quarterback in recent years became the undoing of former coach Jeff Tedford, who was fired after going 3-9 in 2012.
