A meeting between Cal coach Jeff Tedford and athletic director Sandy Barbour to discuss the future of the football program could come soon after Saturday's season finale against Oregon State.
Barbour told the San Jose Mercury News that she wants to address the situation quickly. Cal (3-8, 2-6 Pac-12) has lost four straight games and struggled this season after an opening loss at home to Nevada.
"In college football, there's not a lot of time to say 'we'll get to that tomorrow,'" Barbour said in an interview with the Mercury News.
"We need to resolve quickly what are the solutions to getting Cal football moving in the right direction. My first and foremost driver in any decision I will make is what's right for Cal."
Cal won't be going to a bowl game for the second time in three seasons. If the Bears lose Saturday, it will be their first five-game losing streeak in 28 years.
Tedford said he anticipates a meeting with Barbour shortly after the team's finale.
"The first place I will look is in the mirror," Tedford said of Cal's shortcomings this season.
