Report: Former Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads joining UCLA staff

Paul Rhoads, who coached Iowa State for seven seasons from 2009-2015, is headed to Los Angeles to join the UCLA coaching staff.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman, Rhoads will be the defensive backs coach for Chip Kelly and the Bruins.

Rhoads led the Cyclones to a 32-55 record during his time in Ames. He made three bowl games, including an Insight Bowl win in 2009, and coached Iowa State to a historic upset of Oklahoma State in 2011. However, Rhodes went a combined 5-19 in his last two years, and was fired at the end of the 2015 season.

Since then, Rhoads has been on the Arkansas staff. He was a defensive backs coach in 2016 and was the defensive coordinator during the 2017 season.
