UCLA announced Sunday that coach Jim Mora has been fired after compiling a 46-30 record in six seasons with the Bruins. "Making a coaching change is never easy, but it's an especially difficult decision when you know that a coach has given his all to our University," said athletic director Dan Guerrero in a statement. "Jim helped reestablish our football program, and was instrumental in so many ways in moving the program forward. While his first four seasons at UCLA were very successful, the past two seasons have not met expectations. We thank Jim and his family for his service to our school and his unquestionable commitment to our student-athletes." Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch will serve as interim coach the remainder of the season. UCLA was Mora's first significant college coaching job after he spent the majority of his career in the NFL. He led the Bruins to a combined 29-11 record his first three seasons in Los Angeles but had seen the team steadily decline over the last three years. UCLA is 17-19 since the start of the 2015 season despite Mora recruiting and coaching star quarterbacks including current Green Bay Packers backup Brett Hundley and potential future top pick Josh Rosen.
