Among the candidates who have emerged to fill two football coaching vacancies at Cal is former Texas defensive coordinator Greg Robinson.
Coachingsearch.com reported that Robinson interviewed with coach Sonny Dykes for the defensive coordinator job that opened when Andy Buh was demoted last week.

Dykes needs coaches who can handle defensive tackles and defensive backs, one of whom is likely to be the coordinator.
