Norm Chow on Neuheisel: Keepin' it Classy

Current Utah and former UCLA offensive coordinator Norm Chow was recently interviewed by Rivals' Tom Dienhart and despite getting the opportunity to take shots at his former boss, Norm kept it very professional:

"Rick wanted to do things differently," says Chow, whose Bruins offense ranked last in the Pac-10 and 100th in the nation (316.7 ypg) in 2010. "He wanted more of a hand in the offense, which he certainly is entitled to.

"It worked out for everybody. Was he mad that I left? He said he didn't want to lose us, but he wanted to make some changes and probably is pretty happy it worked out like it did."

Norm took a lot of heat during his time in Westwood for an ineffective, conservative offense that no one was excited about.  Despite the hype, Norm wasn't able to replicate the magic he had at his prior stints at BYU, NC State, and U$C. 

Now, he's found himself working under Kyle Whittingham at a successful Utes program coming off a 10-3 season, looking to challenge for the inaugural Pac-12 South crown (esp. with U$C ineligible).  Things worked out pretty good for him and it's no secret that Rick is on the hot seat in Westwood.  Despite a golden opportunity to take a shot at his old boss, Norm kept it very classy with his comments on Neuheisel.

I think it speaks volumes about Norm as a man. We may not have agreed with how he ran our offense when he was here, but he certainly deserves our kudos for, as Ron Burgundy would say, keepin' it classy.
