Cordell Broadus Quits UCLA Football...Again

New, comments

When Cordell’s name wasn’t on this morning’s roster, it raised eyebrows. Coach Mora addressed that after practice today.

If you look at the roster on UCLABruins.com, Cordell Broadus is listed as a wide receiver.

But, if you went to campus this morning for the first session of UCLA Football Training Camp, his name was not listed on the roster, according to LA Daily News beat writer Thuc Nhi Nguyen.

Apparently, that’s because he is no longer on the team.

Tracy Pierson of Bruin Report Online has video of Coach Mora’s post-practice press conference from this morning. At the 2:35 mark, Mora is asked if Cordell is no longer with the program.

Mora replied:

Cordell is no longer with the program. He’s going to pursue other passions in his life and we encourage that. I appreciate that fact that he came back out again this Spring and gave it another shot. But this is an incredibly talented young man in so many areas and it will be fun to watch what he does with his life. We haven’t heard the last from him. Probably, just the start.

Here’s the whole video of Coach Mora. Thanks to Tracy for posting it.
