Neuheisel in the picture at UCLA

Ravens offensive coordinator Rick Neuheisel is apparently the front-runner for the coaching vacancy at UCLA.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Neuheisel had his second interview Tuesday, this time with school chancellor Gene Block. Neuheisel is reportedly the only candidate who has interviewed with Block.

UCLA recently fired Karl Dorrell, a former teammate of Neuheisel's when they played for the Bruins and Neuheisel's former offensive coordinator at Colorado. Neuheisel has been with the Ravens since 2005, two years after he was fired at Washington.

Neuheisel later won a $4.5 million settlement from Washington for wrongful dismissal.

Neuheisel, 46, went from walk-on to Rose Bowl hero in Westwood, leading the Bruins to a 45-9 win over Illinois in 1984 and, after getting his law degree, later returning to his alma mater as quarterback coach, tutoring Troy Aikman among others.

Neuheisel's body of work with the Ravens is hard to measure, given that he was quarterbacks coach with mixed results for Kyle Boller and Steve McNair, and he doesn't call the plays as offensive coordinator.
