California has hired former Eastern Michigan coach Jeff Genyk as its special teams coordinator and tight ends coach. Golden Bears coach Jeff Tedford made the announcement Saturday that Genyk would replace Pete Alamar on his staff. Genyk spent five years as head coach at Eastern Michigan before being fired in 2008. He had a 16-42 record at Eastern Michigan. Genyk previously spent 12 seasons as an assistant at Northwestern. He ran the special teams there in his final eight seasons with the Wildcats. He helped Northwestern win shares of three Big Ten titles and go to the Rose Bowl following the 1995 season.
