And another one gone. Or two, rather.
After Thursday's spring practice, Cal football coach Jeff Tedford narrowed his spring quarterback rotation down to three: senior Brock Mansion, junior Zach Maynard and sophomore Allan Bridgford.
Mansion took over the top spot last fall after Kevin Riley's college career ended with a knee injury at Oregon State on Oct. 30. As a starter for the rest of the season, he passed for two touchdowns while completing 48.9 percent of his passes.
Maynard, a more mobile quarterback, transferred from Buffalo last year to play with his half-brother, wide receiver Keenan Allen. Bridgford was a touted recruit, but has been plagued by a shoulder injury during his time in Berkeley.
Redshirt freshman Austin Hinder takes the No. 4 spot and junior Beau Sweeney follows behind him. Sweeney had been Riley's backup for around a year until Mansion passed him in the depth chart early last fall.
Redshirt freshman wide receiver Tevin Carter has quit the football team and is now in his native Los Angeles. Tedford said he does not know if Carter still has the passion to continue playing football.
Carter was a four-star recruit and, along with fellow redshirt Kaelin Clay, was expected to compete for playing time behind starters Allen and Marvin Jones.
