WVU Coach Dana Holgorsen will be looking to replace another member of his staff as Tom Bradley will be heading out to UCLA to become their defensive coordinator. Bradley the long time assistant at Penn State only spent one year with WVU, but his experience and influence will be missed.

It was first being reported as close to being done by Bruce Feldman back on the 19th:

Now it looks all-but-official as the vetting process looks to be complete:

UCLA gets itself a veteran and proven defensive coordinator who helped Tony Gibson and the WVU staff turn around a defense that was among the worst in the Big 12 prior to his arrival.

Bradley leaving obviously opens up another spot on the WVU staff that will probably be looking for someone on the offensive side of the ball to balance things out some more.

WVU's spring drills begin on March 15.
