Cal AD Sandy Barbour stepping down
June 27, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

BERKELEY — California athletic director Sandy Barbour is stepping down from her position effective July 15.

A person in the athletic department with knowledge of the decision said Thursday that Barbour and chancellor Nicholas Dirks determined it was time for a “change in leadership.” The San Jose Mercury News first reported the move.

Barbour has been in the role of AD since 2004 and has come under fire of late for struggles by the football team. Barbour fired Jeff Tedford following a 3-9 campaign in 2012 and hired Sonny Dykes as his replacement. The Golden Bears went 1-11 in their first season under Dykes.

The person says a prominent alum and former student athlete will be named interim athletic director. A news conference to announce the changes is scheduled for Friday.
