Berkeley football hire expected Monday or Tuesday

I spoke a short time ago with Berkeley athletic director Bill Gaebler, who said the school should be announcing it’s new head coach early next week. Look for the announcement to come Monday or Tuesday.

I cover mostly San Jose State football for the San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group, but also fill in from time to time with the 49ers, Warriors, A's and Giants.

    Jimmy, who’s the front runner?

  • Jimmy Durkin

    It appears to be Fred Sims. Just waiting on the official word from Berkeley to come down, probably Monday.

  • Momma

  • dgreen

    Wow well if Fred got it I am so glad for him and hope that he can do a good job there. I am sure that he can!

  • brandonbeard

    Hey I also heard that Fred got the job as well. That’s wassup, cuz he has done his thing during his time at St.Liz

    i think i can bet that momma is a st liz parent maybe even a hoop mom

  • Bcfan

    Coach Sims is a very good coach. If he gets the job Berkeley is getting a good coach and a good man!

    The hire is official. He has already met with the retuning players. Funny that this hiring does not have all the fan fare of the previous one. Or did I miss the press conference with the mayor this time.

    I do agree with the group, this is a great hire. Sims will have no problem relating to the kids, he has a great football mind, and should be embraced by the staff and community. The only thing to be mindful of is the Private to Public school transition.

    here we go again with wannaknow hope u dont cross the line like u did during football season, just really wondering how u know some much about b high are u a coach there.

  • Momma

    No Momma is not a hoop mom, sorry guys! I had the pleasure of working side by side with him as his team mom for 4 years! Sims doesn’t need any fanfare. he isn’t that kind of guy.
