(LOS ANGELES) -- After going 21-29 over the past four seasons, the UCLA Bruins are hoping Jim Mora Jr. can turn the team's fortunes around. The university is on the verge of hiring of Mora, who will replace the recently fired Rick Neuheisal.
Mora has very little coaching at the college level but has had success at the NFL level. Mora was the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2004-2006, and took the team to the NFC Championship game in his first season with the team, but was later fired after going 8-8 and 7-9 the following two seasons.
His last head coaching job came in 2009 when he was the coach for the Seattle Seahawks after serving as an assistant for the team the previous two seasons. He lasted only one season as the head coach after leading the team to a record of just 5-11.
Mora's only coaching experience in college was back in 1984 when he served as a graduate assistant at Washington.
