Noel Mazzone Joins Jim Mora's UCLA Coaching Staff

Jim Mora Jr. is wasting little time putting together his coaching staff at UCLA. The new Bruins coach's most recent hire is apparently Noel Mazzone, who most recently was the offensive coordinator at Arizona State.

Mazzone's hire is at least the fourth since Mora was officially announced on Dec. 10. He joins SMU's Adrian Klemm, Washington's Demetrice Martin and Arizona State's Steve Broussard. All three of those coaches have strong recruiting ties to Southern California.

Mazzone comes to UCLA with a rather lengthy coaching resume that has included stops as the offensive coordinator at Ole Miss, Auburn, Oregon State and NC State. He even did a stint as the wide receivers coach for the New York Jets.

With the Sun Devils since 2010, Mazzone's offense was 26th in yards per game, 13th in passing yards per game and 25th in points per game this year. The Sun Devils were in the top 30 of all three areas in 2010, as well.
