Snoop Dogg’s son, Cordell Broadus, is calling it quits with UCLA football for a second time.
Broadus’ name was not included on UCLA’s fall roster on Monday, and head coach Jim Mora told the media that Broadus left the team to pursue other passions.
The announcement mirrored Mora’s explanation when Broadus left the UCLA football team in 2015. According to 247Sports, he was a four-star wide receiver prospect with offers from USC and Arizona State. His senior year at Bishop Gorman (Nev.) was featured on the appropriately titled ESPNU mini-series, Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream.
In October, Broadus explained that he only played football because of his dad.
“I played football for my father because I thought that was the only way he would love me & be apart of my life. It took me 12 years to realize he loves Cordell Broadus the person not Cordell Broadus the football player. The best day of my life was when I heard those exact words; I love you dad hope you have a great birthday.”
While Broadus said he was excited to be back with the UCLA football program in April, it just wasn’t a good fit for the Bruins.
