BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Cal Golden Bears know all about Colorado quarterback Tyler Hansen, and not just because they faced the Buffaloes last season.
Eric Kiesau, the Bears' new passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach, was the Buffaloes' offensive coordinator under Dan Hawkins, so he's been sharing his knowledge of his former pupils with Cal's defensive coaches.
When Jon Embree was hired as Colorado's head coach, he brought Eric Bieniemy with him from the NFL ranks to serve as his offensive coordinator, and Kiesau went West.
While Hansen said he's eager to see his former mentor, Kiesau said he's trying to keep emotion out of this weekend and treating his homecoming strictly as a business trip.
