Jon Gold and Adam Maya (whose "reporting" has been discussed a lot here on BruinsNation and not exactly in favorable light) apparently cornered Rick Neuheisel to serve them up some coach-speak. Neuheisel spoke and didn't provide them with any news. Rick served up some bland coach-speak:
BruinReportOnline.com has always been a solid reporter. Few days ago when he reported that Chow might be on his way out there were snickers in LA's mainstream media. Yet recent stories indicate that is where Neuheisel might be moving. We find Tracy more credible on UCLA related matters than anyone else who has official press credentials. Just because a head coach is not saying anything definitive do not mean things are not taking place in the back ground.
On Mike Johnson being hired as OC:
"All that went out yesterday was premature. Nothing can happen fast. I have a wide receiver job open and a defensive coordinator job open. I've talked to some coaches and certainly made a lot of calls and some ideas on the way things can work. And I've also talked about a redistribution of assignments within the coaching staff. I'm still toying with that idea. In trying to get this right I'm willing to look outside the box. With respect to Norm, Norm is a coach on our staff."
So don't panic or make conclusions based on Neuheisel's comments that don't offer any news. Everyone knows clock is ticking in recruiting world with signing day approaching and key recruiting visit weekends coming up. Then again Rick knows that better than anyone.
