BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California has hired Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes in hopes that the offensive mastermind can revive a program that struggled in recent years under the fired Jeff Tedford.

Athletic director Sandy Barbour announced the hire Wednesday night. Dykes will be formally introduced at a news conference Thursday.

Dykes had a 22-15 record with the Bulldogs, averaging 35.9 points and 452.5 yards per game in his tenure. He takes over a Cal team that went 3-9 this past season and missed a bowl for the second time in three years.

Dykes says Cal offers one of the best combinations of athletics and academics in the country.
