1/17/2006 - UCLA Bruins

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA fired defensive coordinator and
linebackers coach Larry Kerr after the Bruins finished the season
with the second-worst run defense in the country.
Kerr had worked three seasons under head coach Karl Dorrell.
The Bruins struggled defensively throughout last season, even
while ranked in the top 10. They won their first eight games, then
gave up 52 points in a loss at Arizona and 66 points in losing to
crosstown rival Southern California.
UCLA (10-2) finished the season with a 50-38 victory over
Northwestern in the Sun Bowl. The Bruins allowed 233 yards rushing
per game.
Kerr previously spent 10 seasons as defensive coordinator at
Colorado State.
