UConn has hired former UCLA coach Jim Mora to lead the Huskies.

Mora has been out of coaching since 2017 after spending six seasons leading UCLA to a 46-30 record. 

He also coached four seasons in the NFL, three with the Atlanta Falcons and one with the Seattle Seahawks, going 31-33. 

UConn has been searching for a coach since September when Randy Edsall stepped down. 

The Huskies are 1-8 in the their first season playing as an independent in football.
