Mora was let go by the Falcons after a mildly disappointing season, but probably didn't help his cause when he told KJR sports radio last month that coaching the UW Huskies would be his dream job (transcribed from espn.com):
Interviewer: If you're available.
Mora: It doesn't even matter if I'm available.
Interviewer: So if you just won the Super Bowl, and it's available, you're there?
Mora: I'd be there.
Interviewer: You're there, OK.
Mora: Dewey, I promise you that. Now, I want to see Ty succeed, and I want to see that program succeed. But if he decides at some point that he's ready to move on and they want me, I will be there. I don't care if we're in the middle of a playoff run, I'm packing my stuff and coming back to Seattle.
Interviewer: So, are you saying ...
Mora: You know, it's funny, and I mean that, and I'm dead serious, the further I get away from it the more I'm drawn to it. You know, that's the job I want, so...
I'd like to mention right now that my personal dream job is running Time Warner. I figure that'll at least get me Atlantic Records.
Update [2007-1-21 19:11:22 by Shrug]: As mentioned in the comments, Mora's hiring has been confirmed (ESPN.com). Details of the contract not available.
