Coach Bill Barnes Passes Away

Former UCLA football head coach Bill Barnes passed away today at 91. Coach Barnes led our program from 1958 to 1964. In 1960 Coach Barnes led the Bruins to a record of 7-2-1 with All-America tailback Bill Kilmer. In 61 Coach Barnes won the AAWU (now Pac-10) championship and took the Bruins to the Rose Bowl. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family. You will be missed by the UCLA community Bill Barnes.
