Bradley is best known for his time at Penn State where he started as an assistant in 1979 and was there until 2011 when he was the interim head coach. Following that, Bradley took some time off before spending 2014 with West Virginia as an assistant head coach. Now, he heads to UCLA to be the defensive coordinator, replacing Jeff Ulbrich, who took a job with the Atlanta Falcons.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, UCLA is currently listed with 33/1 odds to win the 2016 College Football Playoffs. Ohio State is the current favorite with 4/1 odds while Alabama has been given 15/2 odds.
