Connecting the Dots Through Westwood
Bob Toledo, right, once won 20 games in a row as UCLA coach, but he eventually was fired and has been out of work for three years. Not any longer. Toledo was hired by New Mexico's Rocky Long, a former assistant under Toledo at Westwood. The Lobos have lacked any punch in their offense and Toledo, who was the mastermind behind some high-scoring UCLA teams, will try to change that. Toledo's successor at UCLA, Karl Dorrell, has two openings on his staff and could be going after USC assistant Ken Norton, a former Bruin player, to coach the linebackers. As for a defensive coordinator, Dorrell appears to want somebody with NFL experience, and that person could be former Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, who says he is interested.
