NBCLA Apologizes for Mora Interruption

As we - along with numerous other media outletsnoted this afternoon, Coach Mora's first attempt at holding his sole press conference of this week was interrupted just seconds into his opening remarks on the team's and his own response to the passing of Nick Pasquale.

Earlier this evening, NBC4 (KNBC - NBC's Los Angeles affiliate) took responsibility, issuing an apology for causing the disruption. The full text of the apology is below:

NBC4 wants to apologize for an incident that we caused Monday afternoon at the news conference with UCLA head coach Jim Mora.

As Mora was talking about the tragic passing of Nick Pasquale, one of our technicians was in the back of the press on the phone with our station.

It disrupted the coach. Understandably, Mora abruptly ended the news conference saying our technician was being disrespectful.

There is no excuse for this incident. We deeply regret it and want to apologize to the Pasquale family, Mora and all of UCLA.

We are sorry.

NBCLA's prompt response and sincere apology for today's incident is greatly appreciated.

Spaulding Notes: Fast Practices & Comeback Kids

Coach Mora had a short presser after UCLA's practice today at Spaulding. Here is the video:

There is not a lot from it. Basically Mora is giving the players 3 days off (Friday through Sunday) before they get into their game-week prep for the Huskers on Monday. Mora appeared pretty happy with what the Bruins accomplished this week.

In terms of the coaches, they are going to be hitting the recruiting trail this weekend as Mora said that they will make their "presence felt" in the high school scene. Hopefully whoever is going to be checking out Brad Kaya (Mazzone?) will be making a good impression because we need a QB in this class.

Mora talked about how there was work being done on Spaulding because apparently it was infected by fungus this past summer. He thanked Chianti for taking care of the issue by bringing in sod from Texas to take care of the practice field over the weekend. We are guessing Mora was feeling sorry for his incompetent boss, so he had to throw him a bone for doing something that is his job. Whatever.

Three quick reads to check out:

Let's hope Goodman and co. are just as prepared for the Huskers.
