He's gone: UCLA fires Jim Mora after third straight loss to USC

Jim Mora's last game at UCLA was the loss to USC. "Jim helped reestablish our football program, and was instrumental in so many ways in moving the program forward".

UCLA head football coach Jim Mora has been relieved of his duties. In six seasons with the Bruins, Mora compiled a 46-30 record. "We thank Jim and his family for his service to our school and his unquestionable commitment to our student-athletes". But the last two seasons have seen the program take a step back: it finished 4-8 past year, and is 5-6 and in danger of missing the missing postseason following a 28-23 loss to No. 11 USC on Saturday.

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.

UCLA has also announced that former National Football League quarterback Troy Aikman will be assisting in the school's upcoming search.

The Bruins' statement noted that Mora's contract will be bought out exclusively using department-generated funds.

UCLA remains a glamorous job and will attract a wide-array of candidates as the search begins, none more obvious than a former Pac-12 coach who has proven to win big.

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.

The Gators and Bruins could both be vying for former OR head coach Chip Kelly.

Former Oregon coach Chip Kelly is likely to be a top target for the Bruins, who had an incompetent offense last season before Fisch fixed it this fall. In 2013 and 2014, the Bruins tied a season record with 10 victories, capping each year with a bowl win.
