UCLA Football: Former Bruin Jerry Neuheisel Promoted to Wide Receivers Coach
After spending three years as a graduate assistant, Neuheisel will be taking on a much bigger role on the Bruin coaching staff.
The UCLA football program officially announced today that Jerry Neuheisel would be taking over as the Bruin wide receivers coach after serving the team for three years as a graduate assistant.
Neuheisel’s football career started with UCLA in 2012 as a player under former head coach Jim Mora. Following his graduation, he spent one year in Japan playing for the Obic Seagulls in the semi-professional X League. He then moved into a coaching role with Texas A&M as an offensive quality control coach, where he was reunited with his former offensive coordinator, Noel Mazzone. One year later, he made the move to Westwood, working as a graduate assistant on Chip Kelly’s staff. He has primarily worked with quarterbacks and wide receivers while with the Bruins.
UCLA made the move following the exit of Jimmie Dougherty, who left UCLA for a quarterbacks coach position at the University of Arizona.
Back in 2014, Neuheisel led the Bruins in an epic win over Texas after then Bruin starting quarterback Brett Hundley went down with an elbow injury.
