The only reason I'm writing about Steve Mariucci now is that I saw a recent comment on bruinsnation that he could be considered as a possible replacement for Karl Dorrell. If and when UCLA decides to fire Dorrell, let's hope that Mariucci is not in the mix.
As a longtime 49er fan, I can tell you that Mariucci and Dorrell are incredibly similar. Mariucci was constantly outcoached in San Francisco and came under fire for not trying to move the ball at the end of the first half in a playoff game against Tampa Bay.
I'm not optimistic about getting rid of Dorrell, but UCLA fans should be vigilant about suggestions for his replacement if that blessed event comes to pass.
