Rewind | Chat with former NFL coach Jim Mora
Football has been a way of life for Jim Mora since he was a kid as his dad moved from the college coaching ranks to the NFL.
He played three seasons at UW (1981-83) and then followed in his father's footsteps.
Mora began his coaching career as a grad assistant at Washington in 1984 and then jumped to the NFL in 1985 with the San Diego Chargers. After stints in San Diego, New Orleans and San Francisco, he took his first NFL head coaching job with Atlanta in 2004.
In his first season with the Falcons, he led the team to an 11-5 record and an appearance in the NFC Championship Game.
Mora later became the assistant head coach and defensive backs coach of the Seahawks in 2007 and was elevated to head coach in 2009 after Mike Holmgren's retirement.
He currently serves as an analyst for FOX, the NFL Network and NFL.com.
Mora talked about the upcoming NFL Draft, the league's labor situation, his coaching career and much more in a live chat April 14 on seattletimes.com.
