Fresno State football to “discuss the state of the program”; reports surfacing that Tedford will step down


FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Fresno State has called a press conference for Friday morning where, according to a news release sent to the media on Thursday evening, the “state of the program moving forward” will be discussed.

The Bulldogs just wrapped up a 4-8 season that ended with a loss in San Jose on Saturday. But the bigger news, according to a tweet sent out Thursday night by national writer Bruce Feldman, surrounds the status of head coach Jeff Tedford:

If Jeff Tedford is indeed stepping aside for health reasons, it would not be the first time. Tedford was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator in 2014 and, according to a December story from that year on, he “took an indefinite leave from the Bucs in September after undergoing a coronary angioplasty prior to the season.”

Tedford has been the Bulldogs’ head coach for the past three seasons. The Bulldogs were 10-4 in 2017 and 12-2 in 2018, before going 4-8 this season.
