UCLA defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich is now officially former UCLA defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich. After reports surfaced last week linking Ulbrich to a job in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons, today UCLA made the move official by announcing Ulbrich has stepped down from his position on UCLA’s coaching staff.

“I would like to thank Coach Ulbrich for everything he has done for UCLA Football over the past three years,” UCLA head coach Jim Mora said in a released statement Sunday. “The hard work he put in on a daily basis was surpassed only by his dedication to helping develop our student-athletes both on and off the field.
