CRN on the season and John Ireland on Norm Chow returning


Jim Hill interviewed CRN today about this season.  CRN said: 

  • he has been told he will return;
  • he could not imagine the season would turn out like it did;
  • next year the cupboard of talent is full;
  • our program did not meet expectations;
  • the upcoming season is crucial to the UCLA football program;
  • and he acknowledged, in terms of his job, the "buzzards are out."

As to his critics, CRN said the world is full of problem identifiers.  In terms of coaching changes, (and I am paraphrasing here) he said such decisions take time and reflection; making changes is not a worthwhile process if not made without a lot of thought. 

Pretty vanilla stuff, but after the interview, Hill spoke to radio and television sports journalist John Ireland and what John, a UCLA grad, has to say about Norm Chow turned my head around. That's after the jump.

Ireland was asked by Hill whether Chow will return.  Ireland, who has good UCLA sources, said it is "coin flip if Norm comes back" and whether Norm will return "could go either way."  

That's news to me that Norm's return is this up in the air.  Now this comes from Ireland who graduated from UCLA and describes himself as a fan  who wants UCLA to succeed.   He is not an agenda driven writer--he is a real journalist (better educated than most and you know why--that's right, he has a UCLA degree).

 

Go Bruins!
