Jim Mora says he plans on staying at UCLA as football coach.
Tennessee and Auburn officials expressed interest in speaking with Mora about their vacancies, but no talks were held.
"It's flattering to be mentioned for such prominent jobs, but I'm committed to UCLA," Mora said Tuesday. "[Athletic Director] Dan Guerrero has been incredibly supportive, and we are determined to bring a national championship to UCLA."
In his first season in Westwood, Mora has guided the Bruins to a 9-4 record, their best record since 2005 and a marked improvement over their 21-29 record in four seasons with Rick Neuheisel as coach.
The turnaround made Mora's a popular name to drop when it came to speculating about various job openings across the country. It also left him as a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award, it was announced Tuesday. The winner receives $50,000 to donate to the charity of his choice and a $20,000 donation to the school's alumni association.
