WATERLOO (AP) -

UCLA has fired football coach Jim Mora, the day after the Bruins lost to rival Southern California for the fourth straight year.

Athletic director Dan Guerrero announced the move Sunday. UCLA fell 28-23 at USC on Saturday night to drop to 5-6 on the season. The Bruins can still become bowl eligible with a victory against California next Saturday but it will be another disappointing season regardless.

Mora went 46-30 record in six years with the Bruins, but the program has slid backward over the last three years. The former NFL coach won 29 games in his first three seasons, but with starting quarterback Josh Rosen, UCLA is 17-19 since 2015, including 10-16 in the Pac-12.

Guerrero says in a statement: "Jim helped re-establish our football program, and was instrumental in so many ways in moving the program forward. While his first four seasons at UCLA were very successful, the past two seasons have not met expectations."
