Cal coach Sonny Dykes speaks out about Pierre Ingram

California Golden Bears head coach Sonny Dykes has spoken out for the first time since being forced to part ways with assistant Pierre Ingram, who was arrested and charged with with solicitation of a lewd act during a prostitution sting.

Dykes made it very clear that it was a difficult thing to do, but he had no choice.

“It’s hard when somebody you know goes through a hard time in their life, especially somebody that you know well,” Dykes said. “Obviously, it’s not anything you ever want to hear.

I was disappointed and surprised. I think everybody was surprised that knew Pierre, but we had to move on.”

Dykes must now look for a new recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach.
