From UCLA Official Release:

UCLA head football coach Rick Neuheisel announced today that defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough and wide receivers coach Reggie Moore have been relieved of their duties, effective immediately. Both coaches were informed in individual meetings with Neuheisel earlier today.

Bullough, 42, has been a member of the staff for five seasons, the past two as defensive coordinator. Moore, 42, just completed his third year as the wide receivers coach.

"The decisions to let Chuck and Reggie go were extremely difficult for me," said Neuheisel. "They are both good coaches who have worked extremely hard for our program and they are both great people. When you make decisions like these, it not only affects the coaches, but their families as well.

"However, at the end of the day, I felt that making these moves was in the best interest of the future of our program," Neuheisel said. "I certainly want to thank both of them for their contributions and wish them good luck with their future opportunities.

"I will begin the search for a new defensive coordinator immediately. At the same time, I am continuing to evaluate the entire staff as we move forward."
