On Tuesday, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors declared Feb. 6 as “Fresno State Football Day” and “Coach Jeff Tedford Day.”
“This means a lot to me, personally, to come back to Fresno, being my alma mater, having gone to school here and played here in ‘81 and ‘82. Coming back and coaching for six years as well. This is home,” Tedford told the supervisors.
Tedford was named the Mountain West Coach of the Year after turning the football program around.
In his first season as head coach, Tedford led the Fresno State football team to 10 wins, a MW West Division championship, 16 All-Conference selections and a Hawaii Bowl victory.
“It’s a foundation that [we were] able to lay this year, and we look forward to many, many more days of success,” Tedford said. “I really appreciate you recognizing us today.”
