UCLA fires coach Jim Mora

Posted November 20, 2017

The UCLA Bruins have fired head football coach Jim Mora, the school announced in a statement.

"Making a coaching change is never easy, but it's an especially hard decision when you know that a coach has given his all to our University", said Guerrero. "We thank Jim and his family for his service to our school and his unquestionable commitment to our student-athletes".

The Bruins had a 46-30 record under Mora, a former Falcons head coach.

Athletic director Dan Guerrero announced the decision and said offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch would take over the program on an interim basis for the rest of the 2017 season.

It looked like Mora was ready to lead the Bruins back in the national title mix following a Pac-12 South title in 2012, his first season with the program.

It's possible. If UCLA were to hire McElwain to come coach the Bruins, that would leave the door wide open for the Gators to go get Kelly.

In October, two IAF Garud commandos were killed in an encounter that also left two terrorists including a local recruit dead. Defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said six militants, including LeT commander Mahmood Bhai, were killed in the gunfight.

Guerrero said his coaching search will be aided by wealthy Bruins booster Casey Wasserman and Hall of Famer and former UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman. Under Mora, Bruin teams produced four of the top five best total offensive season outputs in school history.

UCLA is 17-19 since 2015 with Rosen in the program, including 10-16 in the Pac-12.

Per 247Sports' Bruin Report Online, that big name is former OR coach Chip Kelly.

UCLA outgained USC 421-264 in the rivals' crosstown showdown on Saturday night, but Trojans coach Clay Helton improved to 3-0 against Mora.

The Bruins are third-worst among the Power Five conference with 37.6 points allowed per game, and second-worst in the FBS with 288.7 yards rushing allowed per game.
