PASADENA -- UCLA defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough was given a one-year extension on his contract midway through this season, ESPNLosAngeles.com has learned.
Bullough confirmed that his contract, which was previously set to expire June 30, 2011, was extended by a year midway through this season. Bullough was paid a $265,000 base salary this season. He was also paid a $60,000 talent fee.
In other words, he's no lame duck.
Still, that's no guarantee he'll be back next season as UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel has promised to evaluate his entire staff after the season.
"It's never been mentioned to me," Bullough said, when asked about his status next season. "I've been around football a long time and I know everything is always evaluated, win or lose. But there's been nothing said to me. We've just been working, trying to win games. "
