PHOTO: Rick Neuheisel Carried Off Practice Field By His Players

This was it for Rick Neuheisel. No matter what happens on Friday in the Pac-12 Championship, Neuheisel will not be back as the UCLA Bruins head coach. He's already been fired, though he will coach one last game, against the Oregon Ducks with a trip to the Rose Bowl on the line.

Wednesday was Neuheisel's final practice with the Bruins, a tough moment for the fired head coach. From Johnathan Gold:

You have got to say this about Rick Neuheisel: He cares about UCLA. He is genuinely broken down right now. Hard to see.

But his team responded with a nice gesture after everything was said and done. After the jump, a photo.
