Sources close to the UCLA football program have confirmed earlier reports that former USC defensive coordinator and Seattle assistant coach Rocky Seto has interviewed with UCLA for its defensive coordinator position.
I’ve been told around 10 or so candidates have interviewed for the position, including former Miami head coach Randy Shannon, who has been much-discussed as the potential hire to replace former defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough.
Seto started as a volunteer assistant with the Trojans in 1999 and ascended to the top defensive spot in Pete Carroll’s last season.
Shannon, meanwhile, will appear on ESPNU’s Signing Day coverage tomorrow throughout the day.
UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel has scheduled a press conference with reporters at 4 p.m. tomorrow. For comparison, last season, only a conference call was set up.
