LOS ANGELES -- UCLAwide receiver Cordell Broadus, the son of Snoop Dogg, has, for the second time, decided to walk away from football, Bruins coach Jim Mora announced Monday.

Broadus, the No. 130-ranked player in the Class of 2015, made the same decision prior to last football season before returning to the program as a walk-on for spring practice.

"He is going to pursue other passions in his life, and we encourage that and I appreciate the fact that he came back out in the spring and gave it another shot, but this is an incredibly talented young man in so many areas," Mora said. "It will be fun to watch what he does with his life. We haven't heard the last from him. Probably just getting started."

In an emotional Instagram post last year, Broadus said: "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."

Broadus was not expected to be a significant contributor.
