UCLA Reportedly Hires Jim Mora To Be Next Bruins Head Coach

LA Times reports that the younger Mora is on his way to Westwood.

UCLA has reached an agreement to hire former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks coach Jim L. Mora, according to a person familiar with the situation who is not authorized to speak on the subject.

UCLA is expected to make a formal announcement on Saturday, and he is to be introduced next week at a news conference.

Quizzical move. I'm guessing UCLA is trying to replicate the Pete Carroll to SC formula and see if a pro head coach can succeed in LA with all the recruiting talent available to him. Mora has never really been a college coach as the LA Times article mentioned, so I wonder if this'll work out the way Bruins fans are hoping it'll work out.

UCLA will be one of many interesting teams to follow in the conference next season, but I'd have to say after the exciting Mike Leach and Rich Rodriguez appointments, this hire leaves me a little puzzled. What say you?
