If Palcic comes to the Hilltop, it looks like the schools pulled a nice switch-a-roo as Adrian Klemm, SMU's former offensive line coach, is now at UCLA coaching the front five and running game.
According to Scout analysts who have covered UCLA, Palcic is a "great X's and O's guy, but a terrible recruiter."
Guess the recruiting tidbit doesn't necessarily matter too much as SMU hired Jason Phillips, who has a hot recruiting footprint in Texas and Louisiana, for that position.
Palcic may not be the best recruiter in the business, but he is great at developing players, which will be important with such a youthful group.
Palcic coached at UCLA for four years in the Rick Neuheisel regime. He's coached three Outland Trophy winners and has spent time coaching at the collegiate level (Ball State, Arizona, Wisconsin, UCLA) and in the pros (Cleveland, Detroit, Atlanta, New Orleans).
As it turns out, Palcic coached the Falcons' offensive line while June Jones was head coach there from 1994-96.
