It didn’t take long for Norm Chow to land a new job, according to ESPN.com, which cited sources. Chow will be announced today as the new offensive coordinator at UCLA.
The Titans fired Chow, 61, last week, as they opted to rehire Mike Heimerdinger from Denver to take over as offensive coordinator.
Chow spent three seasons in Tennessee, and the offense struggled to produce points, never scoring more than 324 in a season. A week after the Titans managed just two field goals in a 17-6 AFC Wild-Card loss at San Diego, Chow was let go.
By joining the Bruins, Chow returns to college football and returns home to Los Angeles, where his wife and family remained after he took the Titans job. He joins the staff of new Bruins coach Rick Neuheisel, who said even before Chow was let go by the Titans that he would like to have him as his offensive coordinator.
Chow, who coached on the college level for 30-plus years before coming to Tennessee, interviewed for the Bruins head coaching vacancy before Neuheisel was hired.
