Is UCLA Job Bellotti's for the Taking?

Oregon's Mike Bellotti is now at the top of UCLA's list after a day of dramatic turns in the Bruins' search to find a successor for the fired Karl Dorrell.

The Oregon coach is expected to decide by Sunday if he wants the UCLA gig. Surprisingly, he is paid only $1,055,000 at Oregon and has a $350,000 buyout, pocket change by today's standards. UCLA is said to be dangling an offer of at least $1.8 million for 57-year-old coach, who has a 105-52 record in 13 seasons in Eugene.

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Norm Chow took himself out of the running on Thursday and Baltimore Raven offensive coordinator Rick Neuheisel expressed his continued interest in returning to Westwood.
