Morgan Breslin said Monday night he didn't know how to react after hearing the news that UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel was fired and before he made any decisions he wanted to talk to some assistant coaches.
"I don't know how to answer," Breslin said. "I already know what's coming and I don't really know what to say about it.
"I don't know what to say. I don't know what I should say. I don't know what's going to happen now. I want to talk to the UCLA coaches before I say anything."

Breslin is a 6-foot-3, 245-pound four-star defensive end from Pleasant Hill (Calif.) Diablo Valley C.C. who committed to the Bruins in late June. Rivals.com rates him as the No. 13 junior college prospect.
Even though it was too early for Breslin to talk about his status, what he thinks about UCLA or if he's going to take other visits, he said keeping a close watch on what happens at UCLA will be important to see if he still fits in.
Not necessarily surprised that Neuheisel was fired, Breslin said he was hopeful he'd keep his coaching job since UCLA is playing in the Pac-12 championship.
"I don't want to be put into a defense where I don't fit in," Breslin said. "Maybe I won't fit in with the new defensive coach so I don't know what's going to happen.
"I thought they had a chance because they're playing for the Pac-12 championship and I thought they could possibly win. Again, I don't know how to answer the questions right now."
Breslin said he planned to call some UCLA coaches Monday night to figure out what's next for him. Arizona, Arkansas State, Boise State, Nevada, Oregon State, Purdue, San Diego State and Utah have also offered.
