It looks like Jim Mora may be about to blow up the entire offensive staff.

According to, UCLA Quarterback Coach Marques Tuiasosopo has had contact with Nevada regarding the head coaching vacancy. If Coach Tui is actively pursuing a new job, it could mean that the writing is on the wall for his future in Westwood.

Meanwhile, Bruin fans wait to see who the new offensive coordinator will be and what will happen with other members of the coaching staff.

At this point, though, it feels like Mora may end up the one things blow up on, just like Wile E. Coyote.

How many potential offensive coordinators will want to consider the UCLA OC job knowing that, if Mora and his coaches can’t turn things around, they will likely be out of a job come next year?

Speaking of Mora being out of a job, Dave Bartoo from mentioned on Twitter that Jim Mora finished the season with the worst Anti CoachEffect stat in the nation at -7. CoachEffect is a measurement of how coaching affects the outcome of the game by factoring in talent levels to determine how good or bad of a job a coach is doing.

In discussing the Polamalu firing on Sunday, Bartoo mentioned that the Anti CoachEffect leader has always ended up fired.

Well, it appears that the Anti CoachEffect stat has no measurement to account for having the worst Athletic Director in the country as your school’s AD.

Go Bruins.
