UCLA’s Karl Dorrell Looking Elsewhere for Employment

onthebuzzer.com karl dorrellFIRE KARL DORRELL! FIRE KARL DORRELL! and that’s exactly what happened on Monday, goodbye Karl Dorrell.  UCLA head coach, or ex-head coach was let go after a disappointing 6-6 season.  Dorrell just couldn’t get some sort of consistency going. His team would show up for some games, then disappear for others like Notre Dame. Dorrell’s biggest victory probably came last year against USC when his Bruins shocked the national title bound Trojans.  Most people don’t know, but Dorrell took the Bruins to a few bowl games.  He came to UCLA from the Denver Broncos at their wide receiver’s coach, cleaned up Bob Toledo’s mess and made some waves of his own. Now that he’s gone, the next coach has some work to do. But rumor has it UCLA’s recruiting class was ranked 4th in the nation.  Does Dorrell get credit for that, you better believe it.  It reminds me of when the Irish ran Ty Willingham out of Notre Dame, and hired Charlie Weiss who had plenty of success with Ty’s recruits. But once his recruits left the team, the real Weiss showed up.  The next UCLA coach better be for real, or it’ll be a matter of time before the city of Westwood and Bruin nation calls for his head too.
