As previously noted here on Bruins Nation, Neuheisel was interviewed by a Portland radio station (KXL FM101) and shared some of his thought about how college football changed during the years he was in the NFL before returning to college coaching. During the last 5 minutes of the interview, he described his experience at UCLA as an "uphill battle" and how imperative it is for AD's to invest in their football programs. He uses Oregon as an example of how years of investing in their football program has resulted in big dividends for the school and the other the non-revenue sports.
Without directly calling out Dan Guerrero, Neuheisel comments that "UCLA can no longer rest on its laurels" and needs to begin investing in the football program, starting with the millions that UCLA gets through the PAC-12 Networks deal. Lastly, he does a good job enumerating the important traits that a successful AD should have.
One can only read between the lines and get the feeling that Neuheisel was basing those opinions on what he didn't experience while at UCLA. Despite his short comings on the field, I've always been and will always be a Neuheisel fan. I can only hope that one day Neuheisel himself or someone of his caliber and passion can one day become UCLA's AD.
