Posted May 18th, 2016

Story highlights
  • Davis Webb, the former starting quarterback at Texas Tech, is headed to Cal, which has a decided Red Raider flavor.

Former Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb could be manning the California offense when the Longhorns head to Berkeley in September.

After committing to Colorado in January, Webb changed his mind this week and decided to enroll at California.

The Longhorns play Cal, Sept. 17.


The Golden Bears new offensive coordinator is Jake Spavital, who parted ways with Texas A&M in January,

Plus, Cal is coached by Sonny Dykes, who played both football and baseball for Texas Tech. And his dad, Spike, is a former Tech head coach and program icon.

The younger Dykes was co-offensive coordinator at Tech, serving alongside Dana Holgorsen, who now is the head coach at West Virginia. Spavital is a Holgorsen protege.
