Already facing a $19 million budget deficit, the Bruins could be staring at more trouble.
Under Armour is attempting to leave its record-breaking 15-year, $280 million deal as the supplier of UCLA Athletics’ apparel just as the two sides enter their fourth year together.
The news was first reported by Los Angeles Times’ Ben Bolch and later confirmed by UCLA Athletics.
Some Bruins are coming back to Westwood.
UCLA Athletics released a four-phase Return to Training plan to bring its athletes back on campus Saturday.
The plan splits all of UCLA’s student-athletes into one of four groups: Group 1 contains all fall Olympic sport student-athletes who live locally plus the football team, Group 2 is composed of men’s and women’s basketball student-athletes, Group 3 comprises the remainder of fall Olympic sport athletes and all other student-athletes who live locally and Group 4 consists of all the remaining student-athletes.
The coronavirus pandemic took hold in the United States in mid-March, and as the initial shock dissipates, the world has begun to adjust to its new reality.

Sports are another step closer to coming back to Westwood.
The Pac-12 Conference released a statement saying that student-athletes may return to campuses starting on June 15 to begin voluntary workouts.
Martin Jarmond was officially announced as UCLA’s next director of Athletics on May 19, making him the ninth person to hold that position in the university’s 101-year history.

While UCLA’s campus will remain dormant for the foreseeable future, there may be signs of stirring in Westwood come next month.
It would be cliche to say the stakes are high for incoming UCLA Athletics Director Martin Jarmond.
But that doesn’t make it any less true.
UCLA Athletics officially announced Jarmond would head up the department Tuesday, locking him into a six-year contract that makes him one of the highest-paid athletics directors in the Pac-12 and the country.
