Two Football Coaches Fired

According to reliable sources, two assistant football coaches were fired today. There is also some word on other changes, including a new offensive coordinator...

Tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator Gary Bernardi, and offensive line coach Mark Weber were fired today, according to good sources.

Bernardi was told early today and had already left UCLA. Weber was in the process of cleaning out his office this afternoon.

I'm also hearing that it's very possible that wide receiver coach Jon Embree could be the new offensive coordinator. A separate source indicated Embree could also be named both wide receiver and tight ends coach.

It's thought that Steve Axman will be just quarterbacks coach.

Sources also indicate that linebacker/special teams coach Jeff Schneider could potentially be fired.
