3-8 2011 Salary:
Tedford is in his 11th season with the Golden Bears, and the team has been competitive for most of that time - just not recently. Cal has had trouble with the class of the Pac-12 and, prior to taking down 25th-ranked UCLA this year, hadn't defeated a ranked opponent since 2009. Rather than waiting to see if Tedford can turn back time to Cal's 2006 conference-winning season, it may be time the school paid the buyout (around $5.4 million) and moved on.
