Champ. Drive: Can Tedford Turn Fresno Around?

Ivan Maisel, Adam Rittenberg and Doug Kezirian discuss the reports that Jeff Tedford will be the next head coach at Fresno State and wonder if he's the right man for the job.

Ted Miller ESPN Staff Writer 

Fresno State tapped Jeff Tedford to replace Tim DeRuyter -- as 1st reported by the Fresno Bee -- knowing he's emotionally connected to the school as a former Bulldogs QB and that he knows how to rebuild a program quickly. Tedford, 55, took over a California team that went 1-10 in 2001 and went 7-5 the following season. Almost immediately thereafter, Cal became a Pac-10 and national contender. Things faded over his final four seasons, including a dreary 3-9 mark in 2012, but Tedford's work since then in the NFL, CFL and as an offensive analyst under Washington coach Chris Petersen means he's probably added some new tools to his kit.
