UCLA, Mora agree on extension

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - UCLA and Jim Mora have agreed to a contract extension that will keep the Bruins' head football coach on the sideline through the 2019 campaign.

Mora has guided the Bruins to consecutive nine-win seasons in his two years at the helm, including an appearance in the Pac-12 title game last year.

UCLA fell just short of the conference title game this season, but the Bruins still posted another win over USC and will play in back-to-back bowl games.

"Jim Mora has established himself as one of the preeminent coaches in all of college football," said UCLA athletics director Dan Guerrero. "Under his guidance, UCLA football has garnered national recognition for its success on the field, in the classroom and in the community."

Before taking over at UCLA, Mora had been a television analyst for two years after a one-season stint as head coach of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. He was also the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2004-06 and led the team to the NFC Championship Game.

He had not coached in college since 1984, when he was a graduate assistant at Washington.
