Newly hired UCLA Bruins head coach Jim Mora Jr. is busy forming his coaching staff already, announcing on Twitter earlier on Friday the official hiring of Noel Mazzone as the next Bruins offensive coordinator, and Jeff Ulbrich as special teams coach and linebackers coach.
Welcome Noel Mazzone (Offensive Coordinator) & Jeff Ulbrich (Special Teams/Linebackers) to the coaching staff!— Jim Mora (@UCLACoachMora) January 6, 2012
Mazzone was previously the offensive coordinator at Arizona State, and has been coaching collegially and professionally since 1980. He's seen stops with Auburn, Ole Miss, Oregon State, and the New York Jets to name a few.
As for Ulbrich, the former San Francisco 49ers linebacker and current special teams assistant with the Seattle Seahawks, this will be only his second coaching job of his career as his playing carrer ending only a few years ago in 2009. He's been with the Seahawks since 2010.
