Cal coach Jeff Tedford said today at the weekly press luncheon that Kevin Riley will remain the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the season, barring injury.
“Kevin is our starting quarterback and gives us the best chance to win,” Tedford said. “We’re not going to make a change there unless something unforeseen happens.”
In response to a question about the development of backups Beau Sweeney and Brock Mansion, Tedford said:
“If they were close to being the best quarterback that we have on this football team then they would see time,” Tedford said. “That’s not the case. Kevin still does some very good things and gives us the best chance to win. Those guys aren’t to his level right now.”
