UCLA assistant coach Adrian Klemm has finished serving the college coaching game’s equivalent of a timeout. Suspended since March for undisclosed recruiting violations, Klemm has been reinstated by the Bruins and may resume coaching duties. Despite an ongoing communication with the NCAA, Klemm has been cleared to return fulfilling his obligations to the program.
“UCLA continues to work jointly and cooperate fully with the NCAA to complete the review of the matters surrounding Klemm’s suspension,” UCLA’s athletic department said in a statement. “To protect the integrity of the ongoing process, UCLA will refrain from further comment at this time.”
In addition to focusing on his responsibilities as running game coordinator, Klemm can now get back into the recruiting work as well, something he was prohibited from participating in while suspended. Many regard Klemm as one of the top recruiters in the country, especially around the Pac-12.
The reason for Klemm’s suspension is still unknown, and it will likely stay that way at this point.
