The UCLA Bruins fanbase may be a little wary about Jim Mora being their new head coach. But Mora might have found a pretty solid hire to start off his reign in Westwood.
Mora has gone to the well and picked up Steve Broussard from the Arizona St. Sun Devils according to Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times. Broussard has been coaching for ASU for the past two years as their wide receivers coach, and has been perhaps one of their best recruiters, particularly in the Los Angeles region. Broussard gives Mora instant recruiting credentials inside his most critical hotbed for finding the best players in the region.
Broussard has coached in several locations, including Portland State from 2004-2006 and Washington State from 2007-2009 as running backs/special teams coach. If Mora wanted to make a hire that people respected, Broussard leaves a real good first impression.
