Report: Coaching veteran Dana Bible is retiring

Dating back to his start as a graduate assistant in Cincinnati back in the mid-70's, Dana Bible has been a mainstay on the sidelines of college football, with a few season in the NFL sprinkled in there as well.

Today, Bruce Feldman shares that the UCLA quarterbacks coach shared with his team that he has decided to retire.

Bible has been a part of Chip Kelly's staff with the Bruins since 2018, and he previously coached alongside him with the 49ers in 2016 as well.

Before joining Kelly's staff, Bible was at NC State, where he served as offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach from 2007-2012. It's his time there, where he's perhaps best known.

Widely considered one of the best quarterback coaches around, Bible has called plays for a number of college football programs including San Diego State, Miami (OH), Cincinnati, Stanford, Boston College, and NC State. He also spent one year calling the plays for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1998.

A part of hundreds of wins as an assistant and play caller over the past four-plus decades, Bible spent just one game in the head coaching chair, taking over in the Music City Bowl following the dismissal of Tom O'Brien. They lost that game 38-24 to Vanderbilt.

In 2009, while coaching at NC State, Bible was diagnosed with a form of Leukemia.

Over the course of his career, Bible has tutored some outstanding college signal callers - a number of which have gone on to stellar NFL careers - including Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, and Mike Glennon.

Now, at age 67, Bible is turning the page to the next chapter of his life.

Please join us in wishing coach Bible the best in whatever that next chapter holds.
