It's rare that a sitting head coach will make a financial contribution to the school that employs him, but Jim Mora did that very thing on Wednesday, agreeing to donate a significant sum of money to the construction of the Wasserman Football Facility.
According to UCLA, it's one of the largest donations from a sitting head coach in history, and according to Jim Mora, who talked about it today after practice, it's a significant sign that he's at UCLA for a long time.
Mora said that if anyone is out there wondering if he's interested in any other jobs, this should be another data point in favor of him staying in Westwood for a long time. Mora has rebuffed overtures from Washington, Texas, and various NFL teams during his time as the UCLA head coach.
In recent months, there have been reports of other college teams negatively recruiting UCLA based on the perceived sense that Mora wouldn't be at UCLA long, but this should go a long way toward combatting that nation.
