Chow won’t budge

 

Offensive coordinator Norm Chow is staying at UCLA, rebuffing overtures from Lane Kiffin to return to Southern California. UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel confirmed Thursday that Chow, a widely respected offensive mastermind during nearly four decades in college football, will be back for a third season with the Bruins. USC athletic director Mike Garrett acknowledged Wednesday he hoped to lure Chow to Kiffin’s new staff with a lucrative offer, but Chow decided not to switch sides in Los Angeles’ fierce football rivalry. “I appreciate the interest from USC and Lane Kiffin, but I feel we are building something special here at UCLA, and I am excited about our future,” Chow said.
