The Bruins of UCLA were the Pac-12 South champions this year, fought Oregon for the Pac-12 Championship and got to play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
Even with all of this, a 6-7 record doomed Rick Neuheisel to not getting another year to right the ship of the Bruins.
Enter once again into the coaching ranks Jim Mora, whose last coaching endeavor did not go so well with the Seattle Seahawks, seeing him get replaced with USC's Pete Carroll.
Mora, like so many of the new coaches in the college ranks, has plenty of coaching experience, but it has yet to be seen what he can do with recruiting. Having to compete against crosstown rival USC and the other powerhouses of the Pac-12 for top recruits may prove to be too much of a challenge for Mora and company, at least this year.
