NFL Photos(NEW YORK) — Jim Mora is staying in Southern California a little longer.
The 52-year-old agreed to a six-year contract extension with UCLA to remain the schools head football coach through the 2019 season.
Mora decided to stay despite being linked to the newly vacant head coaching position at Washington.
“Under his guidance, UCLA football has garnered national recognition for its success on the field, in the classroom and in the community,” Athletic director Dan Guerrero said. “We are excited about the commitment Jim has made to our student-athletes and this university and feel this extension further demonstrates UCLA’s commitment to building a championship-caliber football program.”
Mora has led the Bruins to back-to-back 9-3 regular seasons, that includes wins over rival USC both seasons.
