UCLA's tumultuous offseason continues.

After reshuffling his staff -- including replacing both coordinators -- Bruins coach Rick Neuheisel announced another change Monday: special teams coach Frank Gansz Jr. has left the staff for personal reasons and he has been replaced by Angus McClure.

McClure was the team's director of on-campus recruiting, though he possesses more than a decade of on-field college coaching experience.

"Frank has done a great job for us during our three years together and I certainly wish him all the best," Neuheisel said in a statement. "He feels that it's in his best interest to make this move and I certainly understand and respect his decision."

McClure has been a member of the Bruins staff since 2007, when he was the tight ends coach under Karl Dorrell. He has spent the past three years in his recruiting position and has handled recruiting administration and organization; managing all official and unofficial visits; tracking all recruiting paperwork, including transcripts, serving as liaison to college All-Star game representatives; liaison with pro scouts; and other assignments from the head coach.

McClure came to UCLA after serving as the offensive line/run game coordinator on Turner Gill's staff at the University of Buffalo during the 2006 season. He spent the two previous seasons (2004-2005) as an assistant on Bill Callahan's staff at Nebraska. He assisted with the offensive line, coaching the offensive tackles, as well as serving in several special teams roles. From 1997-2003, McClure was the assistant head coach and offensive line coach from 1997-2003 Sacramento State.

"Angus has a lot of experience both in on-field coaching and administration and organization," Neuheisel said. "He has been a valuable member of the staff and I know he was anxious to return to coaching. This will be a smooth transition and I expect our special teams to flourish under his guidance."
