Jeff Tedford stops by Fresno State football practice

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Wednesday morning saw a special visitor to Fresno State's tenth Spring practice. For the first time since stepping down as head coach, Jeff Tedford was seen visiting with the FS football team.

Tedford coached the Bulldogs from 2017-19, inheriting a 1-11 football program and in just two seasons turned in the most wins in a single season in program history (12-3) en route to a Mountain West Championship and win over Arizona State in the Las Vegas Bowl.
