DeShaun Foster Accepts The UCLA Head Coaching Job

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. When it comes to UCLA football, I’m not sure there is a better way to put it. Chip Kelly would rather be the offensive coordinator for Ohio State than the head coach for the Bruins. Well, that turn of events opened the door for one man to have his dream job. DeShaun Foster is returning to the program to be the next head coach in Los Angeles.

Matt Zenitz of 247 Sports was the first to report the news:

Foster, 44, lasted less than one week with the Raiders. He was poised to be the running back coach in Las Vegas for Antonio Pierce. Instead, he’s a head coach for the first time. Prior to taking the Raiders job, Foster had otherwise been with UCLA for the last seven years.

The former second round pick by the Panthers in the 2002 NFL Draft played in the league for a long time. However, he may be more well known for what he did in college with UCLA as a player. Foster is in the collegiate Hall of Fame for UCLA.

More importantly, maybe this move helps sway players within the program to stay. Since Kelly left, all the players on the roster are allowed to enter the transfer portal if they wish to do so. Maybe the hiring of Foster reduces the panic level at the program given his notoriety as a player and coach.
