Karl Dorrell Fired As Football Coach At UCLA

UCLA football coach Karl Dorrell has been fired.

Dorrell's dismissal comes two days after UCLA's loss to cross-town rival Southern California in a game that decided the Pac-10 berth for the Rose Bowl.

Dorrell went 35-27 in five years as head coach, ending with a 6-6 record this season.

Today was the 43-year-old's last day on the job.

UCLA athletics director Dan Guerrero says a national search for a new coach has already started.
