“Elite. UCLA is elite. It is our job as the coaching staff and administrators to maintain being elite and take it to the next level.”
Newly-hired athletic director Martin Jarmond spoke those words on the Jim Rome Show just this week, talking about his goals for the future of the UCLA Bruins.
There was a lot to unpack in his entire interview on Rome but perhaps the most important piece of the whole conversation is the sentence above.
Jarmond not only believes that UCLA is elite, and I’ve got to say, I believe him, but he also believes UCLA can stay elite.
