UCLA Coach Jim Mora said he will remain the Bruins’ coach.
Tennessee and Auburn officials reportedly are interested in Mora, who has led UCLA to a 9-3 record and a spot in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl in his first season. It will fall on deaf ears.
[Updated at 10:42 a.m.: “It’s flattering to be mentioned for such prominent jobs, but I’m committed to UCLA,” Mora said. “[Athletic Director] Dan Guerrero has been incredibly supportive and we are determined to bring a national championship to UCLA.”]
Mora is under contract with UCLA through the 2016 season.
Mora’s first-year success made for Internet speculation. But Mora said he has not spoken to anyone from Tennessee or Auburn.
