Running backs coach Steve Broussard has been fired, according to sources. Broussard was in his second year as the running backs coach at UCLA.

We've heard that graduate assistant, and former running back Deshaun Foster has the inside track on replacing Broussard. Foster, according to sources, was doing much of the work with the players in practice, and the players are said to love him.

There had been some complaints about Broussard's ability on the recruiting trail, and his ability to connect with top recruits, like Joe Mixon. The move is the first one that Jim Mora has made on staff since arriving in Westwood.
