Maybe this Rick Neuheisel-to-UCLA thing is going to happen, but T.J. Simers of the L.A. Times says Bruin athletic director Dan Guerrero is in over his head again:
"He interviews Norm Chow, as if you have to talk to Norm Chow to know he can't talk, and as if you have to see for yourself why he's never gotten a shot at being a head coach.
"He interviews DeWayne Walker, as if Walker has any shot of becoming UCLA's next head coach, a guy with no previous experience as head coach replacing a guy who had no previous experience as a head coach, and failed. ... Guerrero interviews Neuheisel, the current back-up plan if everyone else in the world rejects the UCLA job.
"The UCLA alumni are calling for Neuheisel's hire, and as I recall, a group of former players was also calling for [Karl] Dorrell's hire five years ago."
