LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA coach Jim Mora has agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2017 after revitalizing the Bruins in his debut season.
UCLA announced the deal late Friday.
Mora led UCLA to nine victories, the Pac-12 South title and a Holiday Bowl berth after replacing Rick Neuheisel. The former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks head coach adjusted splendidly to the college game, even beating crosstown rival Southern California while climbing as high as No. 15 in the rankings.
The Bruins (9-5) lost their final three games, including two meetings with Rose Bowl champion Stanford and the Holiday Bowl against Baylor.
Mora agreed to a five-year, $12 million deal in December 2011 after two years out of football following his firing by the Seahawks. He hadn't coached college football in a quarter-century.
