Angus McClure is one of the more interesting coaches on the staff.
This upcoming season will mark the sixth year that he's been with the Bruins. Under the former regime, McClure worked with the offensive line, the tight ends and the special teams.
Naturally, Mora chose to retain McClure—as the defensive line coach.
While this may be unconventional, there's some method to the madness. As a former coach on the offensive side of the ball, McClure has an interesting perspective.
He'll be able to work with the Bruin defensive linemen and relay tricks of the trade from an offensive lineman's viewpoint.
As a Bay Area native, McClure has strong recruiting ties in Northern California. Those connections have helped UCLA land players such as Nate Iese, Kenny Walker and Marcus Rios, among others.
Not coincidentally, McClure also holds the title of recruiting coordinator.
McClure is one of two holdovers from the previous staff. The other returnee is tight ends coach Marques Tuiasosopo.
