Whole lotta sixes.
Jim Mora has been fired as head coach at UCLA, less than 24 hours after a loss to USC dropped the Bruins to 5-6 on the season. Here’s the release:
My guess as to why UCLA did it, and decided to swallow the large buyout: They don’t want Florida to get Chip Kelly before they can swing for the great coach.
It’ll cost UCLA over $12 million to buy out Mora. It’ll cost even more to hire Chip Kelly.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail.
Trump’s tweet Sunday comes after the father of player LiAngelo Ball minimized Trump’s involvement in winning the players’ release during an interview Saturday with ESPN. Trump has said he raised the players’ detention with Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) during the leaders’ recent meeting in Beijing.
The players returned to the U.S. last week. They have been indefinitely suspended from the team.
Says Trump: “Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”
