Michael Robinson, the father of UCLA freshman quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, is not a big fan of head coach Chip Kelly.

On Sunday, Robinson lambasted Kelly's coaching on Twitter in the wake of UCLA's 0-3 start to the season:

Thompson-Robinson has had his ups-and-downs while serving as UCLA's starting quarterback this season, throwing for 522 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while completing just 54.7 percent of his passes. He's been thrust into starting duty while senior transfer Wilton Speight recovers from a back injury. 

After a tough 26-17 loss to Cincinnati to open the season, the Bruins have been blown out by Oklahoma and Fresno State. 

"Obviously it’s a brand-new offense," junior wide receiver Theo Howard said of the team's early struggles on that side of the ball, per Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times. "We're still working on jelling and getting together. We have new faces on the line. We have true freshmen that are playing at the receiver and running back spot. Everybody's just getting used to each other and trying to play."

"It's a process, but we'll get there. We just have to keep the faith."

Thompson, on the other hand, has very clearly lost the faith.
