UCLA fires coach Jim Mora

UCLA fires coach Jim Mora

UCLA fired head coach Jim Mora on Sunday, and now the Bruins are going to be in competition with Florida and Tennessee to see which school will make the biggest splash hire.

"Jim helped re-establish our football program, and was instrumental in so many ways in moving the program forward", Guerrero said in a statement.

Mora, the son of former Saints and Colts coach Jim Mora, joined UCLA in 2012 after several coaching stops in the National Football League, including the head jobs in Atlanta and Seattle.

Mora, who turned 56 on Sunday, has a 46-30 record in his sixth season at UCLA. "We thank Jim and his family for his service to our school and his unquestionable commitment to our student-athletes".

Mora led UCLA to back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2013-14, but the Bruins struggled the last three seasons with a 17-19 record. The Bruins went 4-8 last season.

There is no word on who will coach the Bruins for their regular season finale against Cal on November 24, but it is a big game for the team, as they will become bowl eligible with a win.

The terms of Mora's contract will be honored by UCLA Athletics, exclusively using department-generated funds.

The best candidate to do that is the most obvious one, Chip Kelly, the former Oregon, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers head coach who has been mentioned anytime a job has come open in the past year.

The appointment marks the first time Fisch, 41, has served as a head coach at the college or pro level, where he's largely worked since 1997. Through 11 games, UCLA ranks fourth in the Pac-12 in points per game (34.1) and third in total offense (466.0 yards per game).
