The Sun — Cal State San Bernardino Athletic Director Kevin Hatcher offered the use of his campus to the displaced UCLA football team.
The Bruins, whose practice field in Westwood is undergoing renovation, will indeed start two weeks worth of fall drills at Cal State this afternoon. UCLA is paying a modest fee for use of the facilities 60 or so miles east of home, but Hatcher said it is more about the exposure his school will receive in hosting the Bruins.
“We’re going to have a lot of people out here that have probably never been out here before,” Hatcher said. “We hope they see what we have to offer and want to come out to a volleyball match or basketball game at Coussoulis Arena.”
Practices are open to the public, although there is a $5 daily fee for parking on campus. Drills under first-year coach Jim Mora begin at 2:45 p.m. each of the next five days and are expected to last about two hours.
