Mora withdraws from consideration for Texas job
UCLA coach Jim Mora says he will not be the next head coach at the University of Texas.
UCLA head coach Jim Mora has withdrawn from consideration for the University of Texas job. Mora was never offered the job, a source told CBSSports.com. ESPN reported Thursday that university representatives had reached out to Mora and were "very interested" in the Bruins coach.
Mora appears entrenched in Los Angeles -- an area he and his family love -- for the forseeable future.
The 52-year-old head coach is 19-8 in two years with the Bruins, including a 10-3 finish and a rout of Virginia Tech in the Sun Bowl earlier this week.
Earlier Friday, another rumored Longhorns candidate -- Baylor head coach Art Briles -- reaffirmed his commitment to the Bears program.
