Well, now that UCLA has gotten the process of replacing an offensive coordinator it hasn't fired yet, the Bruins are now moving on to finding a replacement for a coach they have fired. According to the Los Angeles Times, former Miami head coach Randy Shannon is in Los Angeles to interview with UCLA for the defensive coordinator position.
Former University of Miami Coach Randy Shannon is being interviewed for the UCLA defensive coordinator job on Saturday, according to a person inside the program who was not authorized to speak on the subject.
Shannon was fired by Miami in November after four seasons as the school's head coach, where he went 28-22. He also spent the six seasons before taking over as head coach as the defensive coordinator at Miami. UCLA fired Chuck Bullough from the position in December, as the Bruins were pretty disappointing on both sides of the ball in 2010.

Whoever ends up replacing Bullough will be taking over a defense that just lost two of its best players to the NFL in Akeem Ayers and Rahim Moore.

UPDATE: Chris Foster now tweets that the Shannon interview will take place on Sunday.
