                   === UCLA gives Mora one-year extension ===
 
 Los  Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - UCLA and head football coach Jim Mora have
 agreed  to  a one-year contract extension  after the Bruins reached the Pac-12
 title game in Mora's first year at the helm.
 
 The extension will keep Mora on the UCLA sideline through the 2017 season.
 
 UCLA won nine of its first 11 games this past season, which included a victory
 over  rival USC, before ending the year with three straight losses -- the last
 a 49-26 drubbing against Baylor in the Holiday Bowl.
 
 "What  Jim Mora  has accomplished  in just  one season  as our  head coach  is
 remarkable,"  said UCLA  athletic director Dan Guerrero. "The wins, the Pac-12
 South  championship,  and  the  bowl  berth were  accompanied  by  an  equally
 impressive performance by the team in the classroom and in the community."
 
 Before  taking over at  UCLA, Mora had been a television analyst for two years
 after  a one-season stint  as head coach of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. He was
 also  the head  coach of the Atlanta  Falcons from 2004-06 and led the team to
 the NFC Championship Game.
 
 He  had not coached in college since 1984, when he was a graduate assistant at
 Washington.
