LOS ANGELES — UCLA has reached an agreement to hire former Seahawks coach Jim Mora as the Bruins' football coach, according to a person familiar with the situation who is not authorized to speak on the subject.

UCLA is expected to make a formal announcement Saturday, and Mora is to be introduced next week at a news conference.

Mora — a former Washington Huskies player and graduate-assistant coach — and UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero were not available for comment.

Mora, 50, takes over a program that was 21-29 in four seasons under Rick Neuheisel, a former UW coach who was fired Nov. 28. UCLA is 6-7 this season, having most recently lost to Oregon in the Pac-12 championship game last week.

Mora has spent the last two years as an analyst with the NFL Network. He showed interest in the job from the start and met with UCLA officials twice.
