The Bruins need a home run hire in a changing Pac-12 landscape.
UCLA has a proud tradition in football, but the last two decades have been very mediocre outside of three or four special seasons. The Bruins’ last Rose Bowl win? That would be a victory over Iowa at the end of the 1985 season.
When Arizona decided to part ways with Mike Stoops, it desperately needed to make a splash with its next head coach. It’s easy to throw around the phrase “home-run hire” during coaching changes, but I feel confident using that term with the Wildcats’ hire of Rich Rodriguez.
