Tedford taps Ludwig as coordinator
By Ted Miller ESPN.com
It didn't take long for California coach Jeff Tedford to replace offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, who bolted this week for the same post at Pittsburgh.
Tedford on Friday tapped Andy Ludwig, who had just been hired away from Utah in December to be Kansas State's offensive coordinator.
This season, Ludwig tutored Utah quarterback Brian Johnson to Mountain West offensive player of the year honors. The Utes finished the year ranked first in the Mountain West Conference and No. 15 nationally in scoring offense averaging 37.4 points a game.
Ludwig previously replaced Tedford as Oregon's offensive coordinator when Tedford was hired as California's head coach in 2002.
When Tedford left Fresno State to become offensive coordinator at Oregon, Ludwig replaced him as offensive coordinator for the Bulldogs.
Ludwig's previous coaching experience includes stints at Boise State and Fresno State, where he coached David Carr, a Heisman Trophy finalist and the 2002 No. 1 NFL draft pick.
