LOS ANGELES — Jim Mora figures he can only fill his knowledge gaps about college football through hard work and repetition.
That's why UCLA's new coach planned to start recruiting Tuesday night, right after the Bruins introduced him as the latest savior for their beleaguered program.
Mora made no outlandish promises when the former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks head coach debuted in Westwood. He only vowed to make UCLA fans proud of a football team that hasn't reached the Rose Bowl in 13 seasons.
Mora hasn't coached college football since a single season at Washington 25 years ago, but UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero believes he can figure it out in time to compete with the Pac-12's elite offenses and star-studded coaching staffs.
Mora replaces Rick Neuheisel, who went 21-29.
