BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California has fired coach Jeff Tedford after his worst season in 11 years with the Golden Bears.

Athletic director Sandy Barbour announced the move Tuesday, saying Tedford served the school admirably.

Tedford engineered an impressive turnaround at Cal after taking over a one-win team following the 2001 season. He won a school-record 82 games and a share of a conference title but ended his tenure with a mediocre run.

The Bears lost their final five games this season, finishing 3-9 for their worst mark under Tedford. Tedford is still owed $6.9 million over the final three years of his contract.
