First reported by our sister site, WildcatAuthority.com, BearTerritory has confirmed that former Arizona analyst Miguel Reveles has joined California's staff as a special teams quality control assistant. Reveles confirmed over direct message that he will be joining the staff. A Cal representative could not comment.
"Excited for the new opportunity," Reveles said. "Coach [Justin] Wilcox has put together a great staff and I'm excited to work alongside coach Ragle, who is a phenomenal coach and a great human being. Look forward to being in the Bay and winning a lot of games."
Reveles has spent the last four years at Arizona, assisting with day-to-day program management, focusing on running back and special teams.
Reveles worked with Charlie Ragle in Tucson, and was the Wildcats' Director of Junior College Relations, and was a staff analyst focusing on running backs and special teams. A close friend of Corona (Calif.) Centennial coach Matt Logan, Reveles has a sizable rolodex of contacts in the Southern California coaching community.
A receiver at Palmdale (Calif.) Highland, Reveles matched up against his new fellow staffer, defensive backs coach Gerald Alexander, then at Rancho Cucamonga.
He then matriculated to Division III La Verne, and tried out for the team, but decided to quit before camp to focus on his pursuit of coaching. He started at Los Osos, then moved to Ontario (Calif.) Colony for two seasons, then Azusa Pacific for one, while still teaching special education at Colony. At Azusa Pacific, he worked under NFL Hall of Famer Jackie Slater and head coach Victor Santa Cruz. He helped recruit the top signing class in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.
Then, Reveles headed to Tucson. He's also had internships with the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers, participating in the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship in 2014 and 2015. He worked with Rex Ryan and former Bears linebacker Ron Rivera.
