This morning, UCLA Football Coach Jim Mora officially announced that Adrian Klemm has been fired.

UCLA issues an official statement which quotes Mora as saying:

Adrian is a friend, which makes change difficult sometimes. But right now, this is what is in the best interest of the program. I know Adrian will be successful in all his future endeavors. He has played a major role in the lives of the young men he has coached and mentored here in Westwood, many of whom now have careers in the NFL. I want to thank him for that commitment to our student-athletes over the years and his dedication to this program. Most of all, I want to wish him all the best moving forward.

Go Bruins.
