Thursday, June 19th, 2008 at 11:47 am in off-season stuff.
Cal coach Jeff Tedford took a cautious approach when asked to comment on last night’s ruling.
“I know a lot of specifics still need to be worked through,” he said. “I’m kind of in a holding mode to see what it all means. I know there are people working on it so we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Tedford did say he was encouraged after talking to athletic director Sandy Barbour.
“I felt like her attitude was pretty positive,” Tedford said. “That’s the impression I got from Sandy. That’s all I can really go by.”
During the season, Tedford said he didn’t really pay much attention to the legal proceedings. He said he still doesn’t, instead waiting for Barbour and other Cal officials to keep him informed.
“It’s out of my control,” Tedford said. “I have confidence in the people in the administration are doing their part, and I just get updates.”
When asked if the facility was still important to him, Tedford replied: “Of course.” But Tedford chose not to elaborate what the facility means to him and the program. He said he’d rather wait until the story is completely written.
