In 2002, Jeff Tedford discovered Aaron Rodgers while Tedford was scouting a player at Butte Community College. Since then, the two have been linked. Tedford then offered Rodgers a transfer to Cal where Rodgers played for two years.
As it turns out, the relationship has continued passed 2004, with NFL's Mike Silver stating that Rodgers helped Tedford get the job with the Buccaneers.
Spurred partly by a glowing recommendation from an old rival, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Smith flew ex-Cal coach Jeff Tedford to Chicago last November to see if their philosophies meshed. Tedford, fired in 2012 after a largely successful 11-year stint in Berkeley that included a near-Rose Bowl season with Rodgers in 2004, ultimately agreed to become Smith's offensive coordinator wherever he landed.
