Dear Coach Petersen,
I am writing today to ask you to consider the job position of Head Football Coach at the University of California, the Golden Bears.
Everyone has read that you have rejected other inquiries about taking a new job, but many Cal fans believe you are an excellent fit for the Bears program. While we were all saddened by the termination of Coach Jeff Tedford most fans knew deep down that a change was needed. A new top notch coach like you will bring a new & exciting energy to the program.
Coach Tedford has left the Cal program in a far better position than when he arrived. Due to his early success Cal was able to raise the funds to renovate the aging California Memorial Stadium, and add the Student-Athlete High Performance Center. Both of these adjoining facilities are state of the art, with the best of the best as far as amenities, training, and medical equipment. But more importantly, the amount of talented players on the Bears is very good. And these young men are quality guys as you never read about them in the police blotter. The character of the team is second to none.
Several reputable college football journalists reported that in speaking with you over the years that supposedly the only two jobs you’d leave BSU for is the Cal job, and that team to the north with a million silly uniforms. I hope this is true.
The Cal community would love to you as our next Head Football Coach. I know that with you leading the program the Golden Bears can & will make it the Rose Bowl, and BCS Bowls. Your reputation as an excellent coach will assist in the recruiting efforts, along with our new shiny facilities, and a great academic experience.
On behalf of all Call Football fans, please take a serious look at becoming our next coach.
