FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Friday: MLB Trade Deadline, DeflateGate, NFL Trade Deadline

Recently fired UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel joined the show to talk about what happened in Westwood.

Dan asked if it was up to him about coaching in the Pac-12 title game against Oregon. “If they hadn’t I would have asked to,” Neuheisel said. “I have preached all season long that tough times don’t last, tough people do.”

Neuheisel said that he was told he won’t coach in a bowl game.

Dan asked Neuheisel if he would have fired himself. Neuheisel said he understands, but that he thinks there’s a case for another year. “We knew when I took this job it was going to be tough sledding, especially when we lost those quarterbacks early on,” Neuheisel said.

Dan asked Neuheisel if UCLA set up an atmosphere where he could succeed.  “You have to decide what your expectation level is and provide the resources to reach that expectation level,” Neuheisel said.

Neuheisel explained he provided the school with a list of what the program needed. “We need a facility,” Neuheisel said. “We need a building that speaks to our commitment to football.”

Dan asked now that he’s not coaching, who should go higher in the draft — Andrew Luck or Matt Barkley. “Luck gets the slight edge because he’s slightly more athletic,” Neuheisel said.
