According to a published report this morning, the scoop Dumpdorrell.com identified last night regarding UCLA's hire of Reggie Moore seems to be confirmed. Still no word from UCLA, but here's the report:
The opening is a direct result of the Bruins hiring Rick Neuheisel as their head coach this week. Neuheisel was Moore's position coach at UCLA when Moore played for the Bruins. Neuheisel then hired Moore as a graduate assistant in 2003 when he was the head coach at the University of Washington.
Obviously, Coach Neu isn't wasting any time assembling his staff. And it's great to welcome back another UCLA alumni back home. Here is Moore's official bio from the Bison's website. And here is more from Tracy Pierson on the UCLA/Moore/Neuheisel connection:
As you may recall, Moore was in the mix last time around. Here is a blurb from last February from Dohn:
UCLA part-time intern Eric Scott and San Jose State receivers coach Brent Brennan also interviewed for the job Moore played in the NFL with the New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams as a receiver and return specialist.
As I mentioned in the comments, I'm not disappointed at all in letting Scott go. UCLA doesn't need guys hanging out with thugs mid-day in Norwalk.
It's a Neu day my friends. Another day, another good move by Neuheisel. Let's hope this keeps rolling.
"Reggie is a great Bruin and he will be an asset to our staff," said Neuheisel. "I haven't put all the pieces to the puzzle together yet, but he has a lot of experience in different areas. One thing I do know is that he will be involved in alumni relations."
