UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen recently found himself in some hot water when expressing opinions about the intersection of academics and athletics on college campuses, but his coach is OK with it.

Jim Mora said on PFT Live that Rosen, a likely future first-round draft pick, is entitled to say what he wants to say.

Im never going to stifle his opinions, Mora said. I just want to make sure hes aware when he does say things publicly there are going to be ramifications.

Mora said Rosen learned after the backlash to his comments that he has a big platform.

Hes realizing any time you speak out people are going to form an opinion of you, sometimes good, sometimes bad, there might be some backlash, perceptions are changed and you have a responsibility to make sure you think about those things before you speak, Mora said.

Still, Mora remains in Rosens corner.
