For the first time in 20 years, UC Davis will be looking for a new head football coach as it begins play in the more competitive Big Sky Conference while remaining committed to the teacher-coach model of the “Davis Way.”
Coach Bob Biggs, a UC Davis football legend as a player (quarterback) and coach, is retiring at the end of the 2012 season after 20 years as head coach and his 35th year overall with the program.
“The person who is going to carry on our football tradition is going to match success on the playing field with our academic integrity,” Director of Athletics Terry Tumey said in a recent interview. “Their philosophy of how they will weave and build a program for success on and off the field will be a key differentiator for earning this position.”
