Cal releases depth chart, reveals three-way tie at quarterback
By Zac Ellis
The Cal quarterback situation is apparently still up in the air. The Golden Bears released their first depth chart of the season on Thursday, and new coach Sonny Dykes seems to still be mulling his team’s options under center.
The chart lists a three-way quarterback tie between Jared Goff, Austin Hinder and Zach Kline. But perhaps fans can read into the order in which the players are listed. The names aren’t alphabetical, instead appearing as follows: Goff, Kline then Hinder.
None of the three players in the running for the job threw a pass for Cal last year. Kline redshirted during his true freshman season in 2012, while Hinder was a sophomore reserve. Goff, a former four-star pro-style recruit out of Marin Catholic, is a true freshman this season. The Golden Bears are looking to replace starter Zach Maynard, who was 180-of-296 passing for 2214 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 picks last season.
