Kennedy Polamalu, Marques Tuiasosopo and Rip Scherer unofficially named 11 Jan 2016 07:59 #7789

Kennedy Polamalu is, unofficially, UCLA's offensive coordinator and Marques Tuiasosopo is, unofficially, UCLA's quarterbacks coach.

Rip Scherer, UCLA's assistant athletic director for football, is, unofficially, UCLA's tight ends coach.

I've heard good things about Polamalu for OC except that he may be limited in his experience in play calling. Tuiasosopo sure is a well-known name as a QB and QB coach. I'm excited to see what the two bring to the team next season.
Rick, can you provide background info on Rip Scherer.

He was co-offensive coordinator in Hawai'i with Dick Tomey and has been a respected coach since the 1970's so he has a lot of experience. He has coach on the NFL and has been a HC on the D1 level. One of my best friends played for Rip when he was in Hawai'i with Tomey and has said nothing but great things about the man since the 70s.

Thanks much, Rick, for that background info on Rip Scherer. It seems that most of the posters on bruin boards do not know much about him except his work at UCLA. He seemed to be described as mostly a bureaucrat who was in over his head in an actual coaching position. Now, with your info, I know better and I feel much more comfortable with him on the coaching staff.
