UCLA Football Coaching Search: Jim Mora Targeted, Al Golden Not Interested

The UCLA Bruins football team are still looking for a head coach.

According to Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times, Miami Hurricanes head coach Al Golden was one of the main targets of the UCLA coaching search, but it didn't work out so well. Golden has already been locked in with the U to be their head coach for almost the rest of the decade, and he really didn't want to be the guy for the Bruins.

So who's next on the agenda for the Bruins? Apparently, former NFL head coach Jim Mora.

Mora has struggled in the pros, going 31-33 in the league. After an 11-5 season in his first year with the Atlanta Falcons, he didn't manage another winning season his next three years in the league with the Falcons and the Seahawks. Interestingly for UCLA fans, Mora was replaced by former USC head coach Pete Carroll.

It's hard to see whether the Bruin faithful would be excited about this hire.

To discuss the thought of Mora being UCLA football head coach and Golden not leading the Bruins, head to Bruins Nation.
