Jim Mora fired by UCLA … on his birthday

Jim Mora is out at UCLA after six seasons as Bruins head coach

Jim Mora's tenure at the helm of UCLA came to an end on Sunday afternoon, as the school announced that it has chose to part ways with its head football coach. UCLA missed the postseason previous year after a 4-8 finish.

Guerrero is set to retire after the 2018-2019 academic year and it was speculated that he would not want to fire his fourth head coach before stepping down, (Bob Toledo, Karl Dorrel, Rick Neuheisel, Mora).

As it became clear UCLA would fail to meet expectations for a consecutive season, Mora addressed his jobs status last week.

"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", Guerrero said in a statement, via ESPN.

Rosen has been anointed as a potential No. 1 pick since he arrived on campus, but even though he continues to look like a budding pro star, UCLA has gone 17-19 in the past three seasons, losing to USC each year.

Mora, whose contract ran through 2021, has a roughly $12 million buyout, according to reports.

Mora, who turned 56 on Sunday, went 46-30 in six seasons with the Bruins. "We thank Jim and his family for his service to our school and his unquestionable commitment to our student-athletes".

Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch has been installed as interim coach. Under Mora, Bruin teams produced four of the top five best total offensive season outputs in school history. The Bruins also announced that they would conduct a "national search" for the next head coach, with a group that includes Troy Aikman participating in finding the next leader of the program. "We will not comment on the search or candidates until we announce a hire, and I would remind our passionate supporters that speculation, rumors and innuendo are just that".
