The Rick Neuheisel Era hasn't gone as planned at UCLA.
Upon his signing to become the head coach of the Bruins, UCLA released an ad saying "The Football Monopoly in L.A. Is Officially Over" with a picture of Neuheisel pointing at someone during a UCLA practice. But it was clear that he was pointing right at USC and former head coach Pete Carroll.
During his three-and-a-half years in Westwood, the Bruins' record is 18-25 overall with a 10-20 record in the Pac-10/Pac-12. He's led the Bruins to one bowl game in 2009, which they won, but haven't finished any better than eighth in the conference.
This year the Bruins are 3-4 with a 2-2 record in the Pac-12. The most recent loss, a 48-12 loss to a 2-5 Arizona Wildcats team.
Many Bruin alumni are calling for an immediate end to the Neuheisel Era. But letting Neuheisel go isn't the right decision.
At least not yet.
