UCLA Head Football Coach Jim Mora announced today the hiring of Jedd Fisch as the team’s offensive coordinator. Fisch, 40, who spent the past two seasons as the University of Michigan’s passing game coordinator and quarterbacks/wide receivers coach, brings nearly two decades of coaching experience to Westwood, having worked alongside collegiate and NFL head coaches the likes of Steve Spurrier, Dom Capers, Brian Billick, Mike Shanahan, Pete Carroll, Gus Bradley and Jim Harbaugh, among others.
“Jedd, in a relatively short amount of time, has earned the respect of some of the game’s greatest offensive minds,” said Mora. “At each of his stops, he has made those teams better while demonstrating a remarkable ability to connect with the young men he has coached. I want to welcome Jedd, his wife Amber and his daughters Zaylee, Ashlee and Kendall to the Bruin family. We couldn’t be more excited, and think Jedd is an exceptional fit for this program.”
“UCLA is known for attracting high-caliber and high-character student-athletes,” said Fisch. “The opportunity to mentor these types of young men is extremely exciting, as is the chance to work with Coach Mora. I’ve said many times how fortunate I have been throughout my career to learn from some tremendous mentors, and this opportunity is no different. My family and I cannot wait to get out to Westwood and hit the ground running.”
