Sonny Dykes: Cal leadership is 'vastly different'

Peaks and valleys are words that describe many coaching careers, and there's no exception to the rule in Strawberry Canyon. In Sonny Dykes' debut as head coach of Cal football, the Bears' porridge was spoiled by an untimely mix of injuries and inexperience, leading to a 1-11 record and no conference wins in 2013.

Now, with nine returning starters on offense and a practice regimen focused on keeping players healthy, coach Dykes feels the Bears are primed to turn the tables in 2014. He shared his positive outlook on the season ahead with Pac-12 Networks' Mike Yam, Nick Aliotti and Rick Neuheisel in the video above.
