The Cal football program is looking to fill its head coaching vacancy after firing Sonny Dukes last week and they have reportedly begun conducting interviews.

According to  Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, the Golden Bears have interviewed Wisconsin Badgers defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox for the position.

Wilcox, who took over the Badgers defense this past season, is very familiar with the Pac-12.

Before joining Wisconsin’s staff, Wilcox spent two years leading the defenses for the Washington Huskies and USC Trojans. Before ever becoming a coordinator, Wilcox served as the linebackers coach at Cal from 2003-2005.

In his lone year at Wisconsin, Wilcox led a top ten defensive unit, with the Badgers finishing No. 7 in the nation in total defense.

Another name to watch in the Golden Bears coaching search is Vanderbilt’s Derek Mason.
