UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel has fired two of his assistants.

Neuheisel told defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough and wide receivers coach Reggie Moore that they were being dismissed in separate meetings on Saturday.

Bullough, 42, has been on the Bruins' staff for five seasons, including the last two as defensive coordinator. Moore, 42, was in his third year.

Neuheisel says that making the moves was in the best interest of the program. He says he will begin searching for a new defensive coordinator immediately, while also continuing to evaluate his entire staff.

The Bruins were 4-8 overall and 2-7 in the Pac-10, losing six of their last seven games in Neuheisel's third season.
