UCLA University of Carrollton, TX and Lower Addison, TX athletic director Athletic director (commonly, "athletics director") is a position at many American colleges and universities, as well as in larger high schools and middle schools, which oversees the work of the coaches and related staff involved in intercollegiate or interscholastic athletic Dan Guerrero in Kansas City on Saturday, according to sources.
Chow and the Titans play at Kansas City today. The former USC An abbreviation for U.S. Code. offensive coordinator was going to meet with Guerrero after the team arrived.
Harbaugh, the defensive backs coach Defensive Backs Coach is a coach in charge of the safeties and cornerbacks in American Football.

Bruins defensive coordinator and interim coach DeWayne Walker interviewed Tuesday.

For Chow, who tutored Heisman Trophy winners Matt Leinart and Carson Palmer at USC, it was another shot at running a major college program. He interviewed for jobs at Stanford, Arizona State and North Carolina North Carolina, state in the SE United States.

Chow was an offensive coordinator at BYU BYU Brigham Young University
BYU Bob's Your Uncle
BYU Bayreuth, Germany - Bindlacher Berg (Airport Code)
BYU Beyond Your Understanding for 17 years, but his only head coaching experience came from 1970-72 at Hawaii's Waialua High.
One interesting twist to a possible Chow hire is Walker's status. The two worked together at BYU and USC, and if Chow was named coach, sources said Walker would consider staying on staff.
Bruins fullback Michael Pitre said he met with associate athletic director of football Bob Field regarding a petition to the NCAA NCAA
National Collegiate Athletic Association for a sixth year of eligibility.
Pitre said he was told the final decision about whether a scholarship would be available would be made by the new head coach, but added former coach Karl Dorrell and Walker already signed off on a return.
"I put everything out there with (Field), so he's trying to help me through it," Pitre said. "It all depends on who the coach is, but (Field) said he would help me."
Pitre missed his freshman season with a neck injury, and was limited to a handful of plays in one game this season because of a knee injury. He does not expect to hear from the NCAA until June.
The official visits of 18 of UCLA's 22 committed players ends today, and a major topic of discussion was whether Walker will be on staff next season.
"I conveyed to them that there's a reason why we're still together," Walker said. "We started off with a vision, and I still believe in that vision. Hopefully, everything works out. These kids are good kids."
Several recruits already said they would stay if Walker remained on staff, but would go to another school if Walker left. Guerrero has made it known he would like to keep Walker on staff, even if Walker wasn't the head coach. Walker said he "lightly" discussed that possibility with the recruits.
"I let them know what I know," Walker said. "All I can say is, 'Hey, I've interviewed for the job, and we'll wait and see what Dan decides to do. We'll know soon enough. -- It's about telling the truth. All I can do is tell them what's been told to me."
