According to some San Diego Union Tribune columnist (I don't believe this guy is a "reporter") - Nick Canepa - apparently Mike Martz is "candidate" for the UCLA gig:Word on the street is that Mike Martz (Madison High) will be the next UCLA football coach, replacing fellow San Diegan Karl Dorrell (Helix High). Martz, current offensive coordinator of the Detroit Lions and former Rams head coach, no doubt would bring some excitement to that program.
A passing wizard, Martz worshipped at the altar shared by Don Coryell and Ernie Zampese (Zampese expanded Air Coryell into an aeronautical conglomerate). UCLA can use some football pizzazz . . .
High school quarterbacks, I would guess, should be attracted to Martz, who likes to get the ball downfield . . .
It makes sense. UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero really has put this thing off, and for what? He's waiting for the end of the NFL regular season I find this pretty effin hilarious.
Then again how much does anyone want to bet that Dohn will be "reporting" within days how "Walker will be open to working under Martz"?!
I am really starting to dig this search.
