UCLA Football Coaching Staff: Bruins Add Eric Yarber As WRs Coach, Sal Alosi As Strength Coac

The UCLA Bruins are going to change things up at certain positions as Jim Mora finalizes his new coaching staff. Two of them come at critical places where the program has been weak.

UCLA has gotten almost no production at the receiver position lately, and their passing game has been among the worst in the conference. Receivers have also dropped footballs and can't run proper routes, particularly hamstrung by the Pistol scheme the Bruins have run the past few seasons.

Enter Eric Yarber, who was most recently the wide receivers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he helped develop Arrellious Benn and Mike Williams into solid players. Yarber is definitely an experienced guy who at least has the credentials to develop Bruins receivers into solid playmakers. Sal Alosi is also the new strength and conditioning coach, and he can help out the Bruins in trying to become a stronger and better team in the trenches.

Angus McClure and Inoke Breckterfield will also move around to different specialties next season.
