Former defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox from Wisconsin signed five years with Cal as head coach this week and Wilcox will be inheriting a defense that needs lots of sprucing up. The Bears finished 125th in the country on defense last season and with the limited amount of money that Cal has to make this thing happen the Bears were able to get a good candidate.

There is not a lot of players lining up to get into Cal but coach Wilcox will address that in his recruiting the Bears have a history of recruiting whether it’s offense or defense. So Wilcox is expected to make some immediate improvement on that side of the ball and the goal is to improve the defense so the Bears have a shot at being at the top half of the Pac 12.
