Mora gets one

Sources have confirmed that UCLA is set to hire SMU offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Adrian Klemm as its new offensive line coach and run game coordinator.

Klemm is regarded as one of the top recruiters in the country, particularly for his ability to recruit Southern California. He prepped at St. Monica Catholic High, playing with Marcellus Wiley, before playing for Hawaii. After a monster senior season following a switch to the offensive line, Klemm was drafted in the second round of the 2000 draft by the New England Patriots, and played in the NFL for five seasons. He began coaching in 2008 and quickly moved up the ranks, ultimately being named’s top non-BCS recruiter in 2010.

Here’s a great story on Klemm from Richie Whitt of the Dallas Morning News – check it out – and I’ll have a conversation with’s Brandon Huffman up a little later.

    I am very excited about this hire. Hopefully we get Steve Broussard and Noel Mazzone as well.

    Neuheisal was a great re recruiter. It takes way more than that.

    That is a great start. Good job by Mora.


    JMJ is going to get these players focused and maximize their potential. Klemm & Broussard were Incredible hires! A Huge Statement right out of the gate!

    Just finished reading the Dallas Morning News re Klemm and it’s hard not to be impressed. Take the SoCal recruiting inroads he has made along with presumed established pipelines in Texas and you have a guy who has his hand in 2 of the top states as far as recruiting goes.

    Palcic did do an okay job with the line over the last couple of years but he never seemed to take to recruiting. I’m sure he’ll land on his feet somewhere.

    Go Bruins !

    Awesome to bring two native sons back to LA in Bruin Blue and Gold. Broussard is a Manual Arts Toiler and Klemm is a St. Monica Mariner — NOT Santa Monica as mentioned. Here we go!

    You BruinsNations Holes can jump off a building in Wash DC. yes, that’s you Nestor!

  • BSKB

    Great hire. It’s nice to see an impact move on the first day.

  • Lifelong Bruin Fan

    Talk about hitting the ground running!

    So glad the rumors of Klemm and Broussard were actually true.

  • Coach Thom

    Bring in Mazzone and then concentrate on the defense!!!

    The pecker heads at Bruinsnation won’t admit they are great hires. They are too busy slamming Dan Guerrero for the cold hot dogs and flat cokes at the sports arena.

    @ BN Sucks

    Seems they don’t realize they are only hurting UCLA with completely ridiculous posts and agenda to force a regime change. yeah right…. They are an extremist fanbase that has lost touch with reality with their own pathetic agenda. They are officially on my sh*t list.

  • BruinPain

    Time for the commitment papers to be signed for Nestor and his crazed minions.
