Rick Neuheisel Expected To Be Fired At End Of Season, According To Report

UCLA football head coach Rick Neuheisel is expected to be fired at the end of the season, according to The Los Angeles Times' Chris Foster, who cites "influential people close to the program who did not want to be identified publicly because the decision was not final."

The Bruins lost to cross-town rival USC Saturday in embarrassing fashion in a 50-0 defeat. Yet, UCLA will play in the Pac-12 title game because USC is banned from postseason play.

Dan Guerrero, UCLA's athletic director, will sit down with Neuheisel after the season to discuss the future, a meeting that could take place after next weekend's conference championship game against Oregon.

When asked if he knew of his job security, Neuheisel was blunt in response;

"I have no idea. All I'm trying to do is my best."

Neuheisel is 21-28 in four seasons with the Bruins, including a 3-25 record against teams that finished with a winning record.
