Bellotti Interviews

Bumped [and then UnBumped]- Well, well, well. Look at this. Me-thinks this search is really starting to get interesting. And I'm starting to feel a touch bad for beginning to doubt DG. Of course, it's too early to get too into this, but this is both a positive development and an indication that the net may have been cast a little wider than I'd thought. Go Bruins. -M

This from Dohn:

UCLA's coaching search has taken them to the Northtwest, where several UCLA administrators met with Oregon coach Mike Bellotti, sources said.
Bellotti is 105-50 since taking over at Oregon in 1995, and is considered one of the top offensive coaches in the West.

Bellotti, 56, played WR at UC Davis before turning to coaching. He was the offensive coordinator at Cal-State Hayward and Weber State before getting his first head coaching job at Chico State in 1984. He was there for 5 seasons the went to Oregon where he became the offensive coordinator, a post he held until he was named head coach in 1995. He has one outright Pac 10 title to his credit (2001) when his team should have gone to the national title game and one co-conference championship (2000). Bellotti is the only coach in Oregon history to have 3 10 win seasons (200, 2001, 2005) and he was on pace to add a fourth 10 win season and likely #1 ranking had Dennis Dixon not been injured.

Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time UCLA made a push at Bellotti.

Bellotti balked earlier in UCLA's interviewing process when intermediaries juggled.

I think Bellotti has to be considered a first tier candidate...your thoughts?
