Here’s a news flash from Cal coach Jeff Tedford as he’s about to begin his ninth season in Berkeley:

He’s going to lighten up in 2010 and have a little fun while coaching the Golden Bears. Who knows, he might even try a little stand-up comedy on the Memorial Stadium field while his team begins practices Saturday. Er, check that.

Not exactly a Mr. Chuckles of the coaching profession, Tedford revealed during a news conference Monday the toll that the 2009 season took on him.

“We need to have some fun. I have to change my attitude, too, and make sure we’re having fun,” he said. “I tend to stress out. I need to lighten up. I want to make it a priority to make sure to keep that in mind.”
