Former UCLA coach thinks Josh Rosen could be next LeBron of Cleveland
One former UCLA football coach thinks that Josh Rosen and Cleveland could be a much better match than many are making it out to be.
Speaking with TMZ Sports on Thursday, Rick Neuheisel, who coached the Bruins for four seasons from 2008 to 2011, was asked if he thought it would be a “death sentence” for the star quarterback to go to the Cleveland Browns.
“Absolutely not,” replied Neuheisel. “Someone’s gonna be the hero of Cleveland. Look what LeBron James did for the Cavaliers. It’s all possible. It’s just going in there with the right attitude.
“Someone’s gonna have to take the right attitude about going to Cleveland and being the guy that can help change the fortunes of the Browns,” he added.
Granted, Rosen, though he is an elite prospect, doesn’t quite have James’ once-in-a-generation talent, nor does he have The King’s deep-seated and lifelong ties to the northeast Ohio area. The 20-year-old signal caller doesn’t appear to have much interest in being the next savior of Cleveland either, so Neuheisel’s comparison here may be a bit of stretch.
