New Sacramento State football coach Jody Sears put on quite a performance in overseeing the first day of the Hornets fall practice Tuesday morning. The animated Sears moved briskly from group to group, barking out instructions, demonstrating techniques and whooping up positive efforts.
Sears came aboard as the Hornets defensive coordinator in January, then was named interim head coach when Marshall Sperbeck abruptly resigned in April, just after spring practice.
The Hornets are preparing for their season opener Aug. 30 at Incarnate Word in San Antonio. Sac States home opener is Sept. 13 against Weber State, the team Sears coached the last two seasons before he was fired.
