Mora Out At UCLA After USC Loss

"While his first four seasons at UCLA were very successful, the past two seasons have not met expectations".

Guerrero will be assisted in the national search for the next head coach by Senior Associate Athletic Director Josh Rebholz, UCLA alumnus and supporter Casey Wasserman and former Bruins football great Troy Aikman. They struggled to run the ball and protect Rosen a year ago, and he ended up missing the final six games with a shoulder injury. However, the Bruins lost at Memphis a couple weeks later and haven't really recovered since then, with four double-digit losses and especially glaring issues in run defense.

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. However, UCLA was 17-19 since 2015.

In six seasons at UCLA, Mora compiled a 46-30 record, leading the Bruins to a pair of school record-tying 10-win seasons, winning the PAC-12 South in 2013 and taking the Bruins to four bowl games.

Trump tweets against Al Franken: 'Where do his hands go?'
Asked if Trump would vote for Moore if he could, the White House spokeswoman responded: "The president is not a voter in Alabama". As for Trump, the president who rarely sits out a feeding frenzy is selectively aiming his Twitter guns at those under scrutiny.

Forget playing in the Pac-12 Championship game this year. The man who recruited like there was no tomorrow during a dominating coaching stint at OR could be interested in returning to the West Coast and the deep resources UCLA could provide.

Per 247Sports' Bruin Report Online, that big name is former OR 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. Although there have been a million Kelly rumors, a UCLA opening has felt both like a realistic option and one of the best possible fits.
