Fresno State football coach Jeff Tedford is stepping down from the job after three seasons at his alma mater.

Tedford was hired by Fresno State following the 2016 season and had a 26-14 record during his tenure. He took over a one-win team and quickly rebuilt the program.
A person familiar with the decision says the 58-year-old Tedford will resign from his job. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the decision has not been announced.
The Athletic first reported the story, saying it was for health reasons.
Tedford was hired by Fresno State following the 2016 season and had a 26-14 record during his tenure. He took over a one-win team and quickly rebuilt the program.
The Bulldogs went 10-4 in his first season and played in the Mountain West title game. Fresno State then set a school record for wins the following year with a 12-2 mark that included a conference title win over longtime nemesis Boise State and then a win over Arizona State in the Las Vegas Bowl. Fresno State finished that season ranked 18th in the nation.

Tedford Began His Head Coaching Career at California

The Bulldogs slumped to a 4-8 finish this year, losing their final four games.
Tedford began his head coaching career at California. He led the Golden Bears to an 82-57 record and eight bowl bids in 11 seasons at Cal.
He helped tutor future first-round quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Kyle Boller during his tenure and got Cal as high as No. 4 in the rankings in 2004 but never made the Rose Bowl.
After being fired from Cal following the 2012 season, Tedford took a job as offensive coordinator in the NFL with Tampa Bay in 2014. He stepped down from that job in the preseason with heart problems.
He coached in the CFL and then spent one season as a consultant at Washington before getting a second chance as a college head coach at Fresno State.
