    Kentucky's Brooks to UCLA??

    What a surprise. In today's LA Times (Dwyre, p D-7) potential candidates to replace fired Karl Dorrell, in addition to Chris Petersen at Boise State and Rick Neuheisel at Ravens, was Rich Brooks of UK!!

    Rich Brooks, around the Pac-10 for a long time, 18 years at Oregon, former Pac-10 coach of the year. In the last few years, has turned Kentucky football into something other than an after thought at a basketball school. Sound familiar?
    Is this remotely possible?

    I never though Brooks was the best choice for Kentucky and he makes even less sense for UCLA, imo.
    GO BIG BLUE!

    Well that would make sense but I'm not sure how probable that is but what a blow that would be to Kentucky in my opinion.

    I figured UCLA might go after Croom to avoid the "racist" perception that comes with firing a black coach

    Actually, I think UCLA is OK with that with the media. Dorrell was given a big time HC job with no prior experience and got five years to prove himself. He just didn't win enough and was very inconsistent

    Being on the short list doesn't mean he will go. Brooks wants to become UK's longest tenured HC or something like that......maybe UK's oldest HC ever, or something......and then retire to Oregon, where he'll be the honorary microphone holder for the pre-game coin flips at the Duck's home games. Rich still has 4 or so more years at UK to set the record, I believe.....
