Cal football coach Sonny Dykes completed his staff with the hiring of Fred Tate as defensive line coach. Tate spent the past two seasons at Cincinnati and Texas Tech, working under Art Kaufman, Cal's new defensive coordinator.

Garret Chachere, who coached defensive ends last season, will handle linebackers, the position group he's coached much of his 23 seasons.

Former defensive coordinator Andy Buh, demoted after the Bears' 1-11 season, is being reassigned within the athletic department and will not have football coaching duties.
