Ulbrich has been with the Bruins for the last three seasons, but he is leaving UCLA to take over as linebackers coach of the Atlanta Falcons, according to ESPN.com.

“I would like to thank Coach Ulbrich for everything he has done for UCLA football over the past three years,” UCLA coach Jim Mora said in a press release. “The hard work he put in on a daily basis was surpassed only by his dedication to helping develop our student-athletes both on and off the field. It was a pleasure working alongside him and watching him develop as a coach, and I anticipate nothing but success for him in the future.”

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, UCLA is getting 33/1 odds to win the 2016 College Football Playoffs. Ohio State is the favorite to repeat, as the Buckeyes have 9/2 odds, while TCU has 8/1 odds.

The Bruins finished the season winning six of their last seven games, including a 40-35 win over Kansas State in the Alamo Bowl.
