Cal Golden Bears staying with Jared Goff at QB


The California Golden Bears have had a rough start to 2013 transitioning to new head coach Sonny Dykes and his air raid offensive attack.

For a time, the quarterback position actually wasn’t a problem. Freshman Jared Goff has started all seven games of the season so far, and has absolutely had his bright moments. He has already broken a school record by throwing for 504 yards in one game this year.

But, he has had his bumps, including against the high-powered Oregon Ducks, a game in which he was pulled after a poor start in favor of another freshman, redshirt Zach Kline.

There were whispers all week that Dykes had opened the QB competition back up and that Kline may actually get the job that he lost out on this past summer.

But, according to Dykes in a release, that won’t be the case and he’ll be sticking with Goff running the offense.

Now, this is nowhere near a guarantee that this will stick. For the time-being, it’s basically Dykes giving his young quarterback one more chance before he may officially make a switch to–well, another young QB.
