Candidates to replace Jim Mora

But the last two seasons have seen the program take a step back: it finished 4-8 previous year, and is 5-6 and in danger of missing the missing postseason following a 28-23 loss to No. 11 USC on Saturday.

Jim Mora's almost-six-year tenure as UCLA's head football coach ended abruptly Sunday, when when the school's athletic director said "the past two seasons have not met expectations" and fired him.

The news, which hits Mora on his 56th birthday, comes amid a disappointing season, one which saw the Bruins drop to 5-6 after losing to rival USC on Sunday. The Bruins finish the regular season at home against California on Friday, needing a win to be bowl-eligible. The school announced that Mora's contract will be "honored by UCLA Athletics, exclusively using department-generated funds". Offensive Coordinator Jedd Fisch will take Mora's place as the interim head coach.

"Coaching student-athletes at UCLA has been the most rewarding experience of my career, and I know the future is bright for the program", Mora said.
