From the LA Times:
Head coach Jim Mora received a five-year, $11.235-million deal. Rick Neuheisel, fired in December, received a five-year, $6.25-million contract in 2008.
Athletic department officials expect to take in $17.6 million this year from television contracts, multimedia rights and apparel sales. The Pac-12 agreed to a $3-billion television deal with Fox andESPN.
Mora's contract also includes retention bonuses paid annually that total $700,000 and performance bonuses that could pay him up to $750,000 per season. Also included in the contract is the use of two cars, a country club membership and a low-interest home loan.
Mora will earn $1.835-million for the 2012 season. He will receive a $100,000 retention bonus in January if he remains the Bruins' coach. Mora will receive $2.2 million in 2013, $2.3 million in 2014, $2.4 million in 2015 and $2.5 million in 2016.
Remember Mora has no experience as a college coach and his NFL record is suspect at best.
Despite our reservations we are rooting for him to succeed and are hoping that he will get it done, taking advantage of UCLA's easiest schedule in years. But, Mora has to get it done.
Given how much money UCLA is paying him - there will not be any time for rebuilding. Winning has to start this season.
