Coach Yates comes from his brief stint at UoA under HC Sumlin. Coach Yates previously coached Boise State and Texas A&M defenses. At Boise State he was initially a DB/Secondary Coach and then came back to head their defense before moving to Texas and Arizona.
“We are excited to bring someone with Marcel’s experience and resume onto our staff as our defensive backs coach,” Wilcox said. “The staffs he has coached on have won a lot of games, and Marcel has a tremendous skill set as a coach, teacher and top recruiter.”
”The foundation for great success has been put in place over the last three seasons at Cal,” Yates said.
