Clancy Pendergast reportedly left for NFL because he does not want to recruit

Clancy Pendergast

Former USC defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast has been a popular man the past two months as he has been considered for many coaching positions.

Pendergast, who took last season off after Steve Sarkisian brought his DC from Washington to USC, interviewed for the Redskins defensive coordinator position, as well as the LSU and Utah DC gigs. Colorado also was said to have had strong interest in him. He eventually settled for a job coaching inside linebackers for the 49ers.

Now that Jeff Ulbrich surprisingly left UCLA to join the Atlanta Falcons coaching staff, the Bruins are said to be interested in trying to get the former Trojans coordinator to Westwood. But apparently there is one big problem: Pendergast is not interested in recruiting and prefers to just stick to coaching, which is why the NFL is a better fit for him.

Football Scoop shared the insight via Twitter in response to a comment about Jim Leavitt getting the Colorado DC job:

Translation: Bruins fans can probably kiss this possibility goodbye. From 1995-2009, Pendergast coached in the NFL. He returned to college at Cal for three seasons and USC for one, and now it seems he has decided the NFL is for him.
