New UCLA DC? Looks like it might be Kentucky's Steve Brown

If this was posted already and I missed it, I apologize.  I haven't had time to look things over yet and analyze everything, but the OC Reg. is reporting that Kentucky's Steve Brown could be named the new DC in a couple of days.  Here it is:

Kentucky defensive coordinator Steve Brown has interviewed with UCLA about the Bruins’ vacant defensive coordinator spot and could be hired within the next few days ending a coaching search now in its third month.

Brown, (photo) an All-Pac-10 defensive back at Oregon, is a protegee of both Rich Brooks, his college coach and boss at Kentucky, and former UCLA coach Dick Vermeil.

In Brown’s three season as Kentucky’s defensive coordinator the Wildcats have gone from 118th nationally in total defense the year before he arrived to No. 45 this past season. Kentucky was one of only two teams to prevent Auburn’s Heisman Trophy quarterback Cam Newton from throwing a touchdown pass last season. Newton’s 136.68 quarterback efficiency rating against the Wildcats was his second lowest of the 2010 season.

From the write-up, this guy seems to be a guy on the rise.  I like the fact he is from the SEC, and has West Coast ties. Also, being a part of the DIck Vermeil coaching tree is always good with me.  He definitely has a better resume than Seto......if that means anything.  

If this happens, I am going to support the guy and be happy that the decision is made and that we have direction.  I won't believe anything however until it is official. This thing has taken way too many turns to believe anything, from anyone, until the ink is dry.
