Ex-Mustangs making news around the country

People always seem to love the “Where Are They Now?” stories. Well, here are some interesting ones on folks with Cal Poly ties who have been in the news the past couple of weeks — for good and not so good reasons:

• Carla Berry, an assistant on the Cal Poly women’s basketball team in 1994, is an assistant for an LSU women’s team that is in the Final Four. She is also the source who came forth last month with news of head coach Pokey Chatman’s alleged improper relationships with players.

• Bob Cantu, a former assistant on the Cal Poly men’s basketball team, could be “a great fit,” as one Riverside Press-Enterprise columnist writes, for the men’s basketball head coaching vacancy at UC Riverside. Cantu is currently an assistant at USC.

• A Hennepin County judge found former Cal Poly men's basketball player Shane Schilling guilty of felony attempted robbery Monday. Schilling also faced two other felonies for auto theft and receiving stolen property.

• With Ed Hartwell gone, former Cal Poly linebacker Jordan Beck might have a shot at a starting position with the Atlanta Falcons.

• Former Cal Poly defensive end Chris Gocong is healthy and ready to get back on the field for the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Andy Reid says Gocong is still being considered for a starting job at linebacker.
