Entire Fresno State football staff let go by coach Jeff Tedford

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno State Bulldogs Athletics announced that Head Football Coach Jeff Tedford met the current football staff and told them they will not be retained for the 2017 football season.

"I would like to thank Coach Eric Kiesau and his staff for the hard work they have put forth during a difficult season," said Tedford. "Their dedication to their craft and tireless effort to keep their team engaged was commendable."
