Brett Hundley weighing return to UCLA as Mora recommits
Brett Hundley tells Jim Rome that any decision on the NFL Draft will have to wait until after the Bruins' bowl game.
"I'm not concerned at all," Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley told Jim Rome in his CBS Sports Radio interview Tuesday about the possibility of Jim Mora leaving for Washington. "He loves UCLA . He loves his players. And we love him."
It turned out that Hundley was right not to worry. UCLA announced a six-year extension for Mora later in the afternoon, keeping the Huskies alum in Westwood for the forseeable future. But now, should Mora be concerned about his star quarterback?
The coach asked Hundley immediately following the Bruins' smackdown of rivals USC if he was coming back to UCLA in 2014 and putting off the NFL Draft for another season. The redshirt sophomore did not answer either way.
"It was funny. It was the last question that I was thinking of at the moment," Hundley told Rome.
Asked the same question by Rome, Hundley said he would not make a decision until after UCLA's bowl game.
"I'm still really not even really thinking about it too much," he said. "There's still a lot of time to decide. So I don't need to rush anything right now. I can sit back, worry about who we are going to play in the bowl game -- getting that 10th win which we really have to do this year and are really shooting for this year.
"After that I can sit back, take my time, understand what's going on and go from there."
While confident Mora wasn't going anywhere, Hundley made it clear that his coach's departure would have made staying at UCLA more difficult, saying "that would be a pretty big change of things" that would dramatically alter "the discussion about staying or leaving."
"When he came in, all the players wanted a change. We were ready to stop the talk of being a soft team ... We were tired of losing," he said. "It was just a new start and we really sat down as a team and said 'This is what we want to do. This is what we're going to do.'
"And we did it."
But will Hundley be around to help them do even more? Stay tuned.
