Football: Michalczik just a formality

I’m told the only reason Cal hasn’t made the hiring of Jim Michalczik as offensive line coach official is due to simple red tape. His hiring has to formally be approved by the UC Regents and some paperwork has to be finalized. Michalczik is indeed already on the staff and has been recruiting for Cal.

The only uncertainty is whether Michalczik will also be the offensive coordinator. I’m told that there is a great likelihood of that happening, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will be the primary playcaller. Jeff Tedford could resume those duties, as he’s done in the past, but that’s undecided at this point.
