Whew! That was close.
Yesterday was a day which saw Noel Mazzone go to College Station and then fly back to LA without having signed a contract with Texas A&M, leaving many wondering if he was really going to leave Westwood.
This morning, however, Bruin fans have gotten what they wanted: Noel and Taylor Mazzone are leaving.
Both Joe Schad of ESPN and Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports have tweeted that Noel has accepted Texas A&M's job offer and that Taylor is joining him there.
