Preston Jackson
Last College:
UC Davis '94

Position:
Assistant Coach (def. backs)

Experience:
7th year

A Cal Aggie Athletic Hall of Fame enshrinee and one of the most successful backs ever to don an Aggie uniform, Jackson enters his seventh year with the program and his second on the defensive side of the ball.

Jackson rejoined the Aggies in 1998 as a running backs coach. In fact, one of the first players under his tutelage - G.P. Muhammad - would eventually supplant Jackson as the all-time leading rusher at UC Davis.

In essentially a two-year Aggie career, Jackson rushed for 3,325 yards and 40 TDs. He continues to hold a number of school records, mostly notably for season rushing yards (1,826) and TDs (24). As a junior in 1992, Jackson earned All-America honors and was the Player of the Year in the Northern California Athletic Conference. One year later, he ranked third nationally in rushing and helped lead the team to the American West Conference title and a berth in the NCAA postseason.

In 2003, Jackson earned an intern coaching position with the Chicago Bears preseason camp, working with running backs and defensive backs.
