UCLA has boosted pay for assistant football coaches to an unprecedented level for the university.

The pay pool was increased to $2.442 million in base salaries and talent fees for this season. This comes two years after staff pay cuts that took the pool from $1.8 million in 2008 to $1.645 million in 2011. Assistant coaches made $2.08 million in 2012.

The $2.442 million does not include signing and retention bonuses.

Mora received a one-contract extension worth $2.5 million last winter. He signed a five-year $10.235-million contract when hired in December 2011.

He also received assurances that UCLA would build a football house, according to people inside the department who were not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.

Mora also lobbied for more pay for assistants after a successful 2012 season, his first season as coach. The Bruins, who were 6-8 in 2011, finished with a 9-5 record -- the program’s most since 2005 -- and won the Pac-12 South Division. The high point was a 38-28 victory over USC.

Offensive line coach Adrian Klemm received a two-year contract that will pay $340,000 this season and $350,000 in 2014. He will also received a $40,000 retention bonus, to be paid Jan. 1, 2015.

Defensive back coach Demetrice Martin received a two-year contract that will pay $227,000 this season and $250,000 in 2015.

Linebacker/special teams coach Jeff Ulbrich was to make $215,000 this season but received a new two-year contract worth $275,000 per season. The contract included a $90,000 signing bonus and retention bonuses of $25,000 (January 2014), $70,000 (January 2015) and $70,000 (July 2015).

Receiver coach Eric Yarber went from $125,000 to $250,000. Defensive line coach Angus McClure will receive $175,000 this season, a $10,000 bump.

In addition, Sal Alosi, the football program’s strength and conditioning coach, had his pay bumped $40,000 to $215,000 per year and received a one-year contract extension that runs through the 2015 season.
