Chip Kelly reportedly made a big addition to his UCLA coaching staff on Monday, hiring former Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads as the Bruins’ secondary coach, according to Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman.

Rhoads spent the past two seasons with Arkansas, initially working as a defensive backs coach before being promoted to defensive coordinator during Year Two.

However, he is best known for his 7-year stint as the Cyclones’ head coach, which included three bowl game appearances.

Rhoads has also worked as a defensive assistant with several other Power-5 programs, including Auburn, Pittsburgh and Ohio State, among others.

Last season, UCLA ranked 74th in pass efficiency defense, which included a 57.1 percent completion rate for 7.3 yards per attempt, as well as a ratio of seven interceptions against 18 touchdowns.
