08:14 AM ET 12.06 | Replacing Rick Neuheisel hasn't been easy. UCLA has again refocused the search for its next football coach. The Bruins were told Monday that it won't be Al Golden, who indicated he was not interested in the job, according to a person close to the situation who is not authorized to speak on the subject. UCLA has now turned its attention to former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks coach Jim Mora Jr., according to other people familiar with the search. Mora, 50, had a record of 26-22 with the Falcons from 2004-06. During his first season, Atlanta reached the NFC championship game, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-10. Mora had a 5-11 record with the Seahawks in 2009, his only season as coach.

Does he have any college experience? And coaches do not do well in coming to college from the pros, or do they? His record was 5-11, real good start.

To be fair this is very close to what USC did with PC.

Not sure Mora has the LA personality that PC did though.

Is there a reason that UCLA can't find a head coach? Seems like a pretty good gig. Huge recruiting base in southern california.

Total coaching budget is about 5mil. I think our HS coach makes more than all but the coordinators and hc.
