Jim Mora adds five assistant coaches
By Peter Yoon
UCLA defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield and quarterbacks coach Marques Tuiasosopo will be retained by incoming coach Jim Mora, the school announced Thursday.
The school also confirmed the previously reported hirings of Demetrice Martin, Adrian Klemm and Steve Broussard. Martin, from Washington, will serve as passing game coordinator/defensive backs coach. Klemm, from Southern Methodist, will take over as run game coordinator/offensive line coach and Broussard, from Arizona State, will serve as running backs coach for the Bruins.
Klemm and Martin will join Mora’s staff immediately, while Broussard will come to Los Angeles after Arizona State competes in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas on Dec. 22. Breckterfield will stay on as defensive line coach, and Tuiasosopo will move to tight ends coach. Mora can add three more coaches.
“Each of these coaches will bring unique qualities to the UCLA football program,” Mora said in a statement released by the school. “All of them will be integral pieces of the UCLA football puzzle from their first day on the job.”
