Our friends at CollegeFootballTalk handle all the major college hiring news, but we couldn’t ignore this one because of its NFL spin.
As John Taylor points out, Jim Mora Jr. has agreed to become the next coach at UCLA.

He once famously said that coaching at the University of Washington was his dream job; now he’ll take on the Huskies in the PAC-18 or whatever they are calling it these days.
Mora, who was replaced by Pete Carroll in Seattle, replaces Rick Neuheisel, who once coached at Washington. Perhaps Mora will get some tips from Carroll on coaching college football in L.A.
