Lake Release

From UCLA:

“Carnell Lake, who earned All-America honors at UCLA and All-Pro acclaim in the National Football League, is leaving his position as an assistant football coach, Bruin head coach Rick Neuheisel announced today.

Neuheisel said the departure was for family reasons.

“Carnell did a great job coaching our cornerbacks last season and will always be remembered as a great Bruin,” said Neuheisel. “Carnell is also a great father and he felt this was in the best interest of his family. We wish him all the best in the future and know he will still be involved in our program as a proud alum.”

Lake, 42, joined the staff in January of 2009 and coached the cornerbacks last season. As a unit, UCLA ranked second in the Pac-10 in pass defense and senior Alterraun Verner earned several All-America honors.”

    Disappointing because Lake is such a legendary Bruin. I assumed he knew what he was getting into but apparently he didn’t. Did he quit or get fired (asked to resign)?
