I hadn’t followed up with Jeff Tedford in a while on the plights of defensive backs Kamaron Yancy and Gary Doxy. As expected, neither player is on the Bears this season.
Tedford said Yancy finished all the appropriate coursework to get into Cal, but remarkably the final class he took at Pierce Junior College didn’t fulfill his requirement to earn his AA.
“It was kind of messed up,” Tedford said. “He tooka class that fulfilled our requirements, but he forgot to check and see if it fulfilled his AA requirements. He finished it and we expected him to show up. All of the sudden, it didn’t count for his AA.”
As for Doxy, Tedford said he kicked him off the team during training camp. Tedford had said during camp that Doxy had been suspended to concentrate on academics but could return if he got his classwork in order. That never happened.
