UCLA Defensive Coordinator Search: No News Is No News

Here's the situation in Westwood: Rick Neuheisel is back from Cabo, Rocky Seto has been resoundingly vetoed, and Randy Shannon reportedly has an offer from another school. Bruins Nation tries to make sense of the myriad swirling storylines surrounding the strange fact that we're approaching the middle of February and UCLA still doesn't have a defensive coordinator on staff. The newest rumored candidate: Kentucky DC Steve Brown.

Brown's openness to leave Lexington has come about after UK coach Joker Philips demoted Brown to a co-defensive coordinator position, bringing in another defensive assistant as a co-coordinator with playcalling responsibilty. Members of our sister SBN site A Sea of Blue has some thoughts on Brown and his performance at Kentucky; a fanpost written during the past season calling for him to go, but with a number of comments defending - or at least explaining the performance of defense under Brown's tutelage.
[...]
Judging by those thoughts, it looks that Brown was able to turn around a very bad defense and make it into at least an average/slightly above average defense in the four years that he has run the defense (he had been Kentucky's defensive backs coach the four years previous).

There have been several other coaching roster moves since we last saw Neuheisel on signing day; more information on those changes is available at the above link. Stay tuned to Bruins Nation for all the latest news on UCLA's coordinator search.
