UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone returns to practice

UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone returned to practice on Thursday morning, after being hospitalized earlier this week.

The 58-year-old had been with the Bruins on Monday, but missed their Tuesday and Wednesday sessions.

“It was great,” said left tackle Conor McDermott. “I love seeing him out there. I was in the middle of the second team period, I turn around and see him, I raised my hand up — ‘Coach Mazzone!’ …

“We were praying for him and worrying about him, of course. We’re happy he’s back.”

    Pretty quick turnaround. I would have guessed that he was going to be out for weeks.

    Welcome back, coach. As much as I gripe about NM, it is obvious that the players love him. That’s always a good sign.
