Mark Fox has had success at previous stops, but he wasn’t shy in admitting he has his work cut out for him with the California Golden Bears.
At his introductory press conference, the former Georgia Bulldogs coach got right to the point.
“There’s a lot of work in front of us, we fully understand that,” Fox said. “When you climb a mountain you don’t just stand at the bottom and look at the top. At the beginning you might take a glance at the top but then you just focus on the next step forward, and that’s what we intend to do.”
Cal has won a total of 16 games the last two years, with only five of those coming within Pac-12 play.
“We want to get a little bit better every day, which will allow us to get better every week, every month and every year,” he said. “If we can do that and stay with some forward momentum, I’m extremely excited about the possibilities of this program.”
The California Golden Bears fired Wyking Jokes, a recruiting guru of sorts, after the season. It will be interesting to see just how Mark Fox approaches team building with the program.
