BruinReportOnline is reporting that UCLA wide receivers coach Eric Yarber is leaving the program to become the wide receivers coach for the LA Rams.

Yarber is the fourth member of the offensive coaching staff to leave the program after last season. He follows Kennedy Polamalu and Adrian Klemm, who were both fired, as well as Marques Tuaiasosopo who took the quarterback coaching job at UC Berkeley. Tight Ends coach Rip Scherer is now the only offensive coach from last season who remains with the program.

The job Yarber did last season was a sore point for many fans because UCLA receivers dropped a lot of passes last season.

Recently, the Bruins failed to sign either of the two top receiver targets they had for the 2017 recruiting class when JUCO transfer DeAndre McNeal opted to sign with Florida Atlantic University and Michael Harley from St. Thomas Aquinas HS in Fort Lauderdale signed with the University of Miami.

Yarber had been with the UCLA Football program since Bruins Coach Jim Mora was hired.


Go Bruins!!!
