UCLA has fired running backs coach Steve Broussard. The news was first reported by Bruin Report Online.
The 46-year-old was a wide receivers coach at Arizona State for two seasons before joining Jim Mora in Westwood in December 2011. He also worked at Portland State and various Southern California high schools following a nine-year NFL career.

With Broussard, the Bruins had only landed one running back in the last two recruiting cycles. Four-star tailback Craig Lee redshirted the 2013 season, while 2012 signee Fabian Moreau converted from running back to cornerback soon after arriving on campus.
“We appreciate the contributions Steve made to the UCLA football program the past two years and wish him much success in the future,” Mora said in a statement.
The Bruins are taking an in-home visit with five-star running back Joe Mixon today.
