New, 58 comments

FoxSports.com is reporting that UCLA Defensive Coordinator is leaving the Bruins to become the Linebackers coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

Apparently, UCLA DC Jeff Ulbrich likes Georgia...a lot. After landing an announcement from 4* LB Roquan Smith who hails from Macon County HS in Montezuma, GA, but, before Smith's LOI has been received by UCLA, FoxSports.com is reporting that Ulbrich has been hired to coach linebackers for the Atlanta Falcons.

Now, this may still prove to be nothing, especially with reports on Twitter saying that UGA is still trying to flip Smith because UCLA has not received his LOI yet.

Update 12:18pm: Jack Wang is reporting that "a source indicated that Ulbrich going to the Falcons is not a done deal."

Update 12:49pm: Jordan Lee of the Daily Bruin is reporting that "Jim Mora will address status of DC Jeff Ulbrich at today's Signing Day press conference slated for 4:30 p.m."

Coach Mora's press conference can be watched live on UCLABruins.com.

Update 1:03pm: Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has written an article on the timeline of the Roquan Smith commitment and the rumors surrounding UCLA DC Jeff Ulbrich.
