Air Force's Troy Calhoun linked to Cal head coach opening

Otto Kitsinger III

Troy Calhoun is mentioned as a possible candidate to replace Jeff Tedford at Cal.

Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun will always be a candidate for most head coaching jobs that come open, this is due to his success at Air Force. Just a few years ago he turned down the Colorado Buffaloes, Denver Broncos and Tennessee Volunteers head coaching jobs.

To no surprise he is being mentioned as a candidate to replace Cal's Jeff Tedford. According to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler, a representative from Cal has already inquired about Calhoun.

With Cal being similar to Air Force on the academic sides which makes Calhoun an attractive coach, but so does Calhoun's 47-29 in six seasons at the Academy. Calhoun is also taking Air Force to their sixth straight bowl appearance.

It has not happened yet, but Calhoun will more than likely also be a candidate, or at least be considered, for the vacancy at Colorado.

With Calhoun turning down those jobs in the past, it will take a lot for him to leave Air Force, which is his alma mater and as well as the team's starting quarterback.
