UCLA fires head coach Jim Mora

UCLA has announced that head football coach Jim Mora has been relieved of his duties today after a 28-23 loss in USC last night.  Mora had a 46-30 record in six seasons as the Bruins head coach but just 17-19 in his last 3 seasons.

“Making a coaching change is never easy, but it’s an especially difficult decision when you know that a coach has given his all to our University,” said athletic director Dan Guerrero in a statement. “Jim helped reestablish our football program, and was instrumental in so many ways in moving the program forward. While his first four seasons at UCLA were very successful, the past two seasons have not met expectations. We thank Jim and his family for his service to our school and his unquestionable commitment to our student-athletes.”

The Bruins had to pay a $12.755 million contract buyout and the head coach search will begin immediately.
