Cal cuts ties with recruiting coordinator

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) California has cut ties with assistant football coach Pierre Ingram after his recent arrest for solicitation.

The school announced Friday that Ingram's contract will not be renewed when it expires at the end of the month and he will no longer represent or act on behalf of the university in any capacity. Ingram had been placed on administrative leave earlier this month following the arrest.

Ingram had been the recruiting coordinator, wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator for the Golden Bears. He spent the previous two seasons as running backs coach.

Ingram came to Cal with head coach Sonny Dykes from Louisiana Tech before the 2013 season.

Ingram is a 2006 graduate of Middle Tennessee, where he was a four-year wide receiver.
