UCLA will be paying Norm Chow $500,000 this year while Chow calls plays for the Utah Utes.
Chow, who has signed a 2-year extension at UCLA last summer worth $1.1 million, was forced out as the Bruins’ offensive coordinator following a month of negotiations following the season. Shortly thereafter, Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham offered his offensive cooordinator position to Chow, who accepted the job.
UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel opted to bring in former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike Johnson to run the offensive. The Bruins also hired Nevada running backs coach Jim Mastro, leading most people to believe “The Pistol” will remain a big part of the UCLA offensive scheme.
Utah actually hosts UCLA on November 12th at Rice Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.
Chow graduated from the University of Utah. Oddly enough, he isn’t coaching the quarterbacks for the Utes. Instead, Chow is coaching the tight ends.
Even more strange, Chow has opted to live in a hotel.
