UCLA Football Coach Jim Mora Unloading Washington Home
When we talk about football in America, we discuss big tackles, long touchdowns and thrilling games won in overtime. Legendary coaches—like Bill Belichick, Jim Mora and Nick Saban, for example—evoke memories of great gridiron battles and a nation’s passion for football.
Those names also wind up on the move at times due to the fickle nature of the football coaching carousel.
Football scion Jim L. Mora, son of former NFL coach Jim E. Mora, took the head coaching job at UCLA in 2011 and left behind a luxurious home in the Seattle area. This Northwest home is a remnant of his unsuccessful one-season stint as the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks head coach in 2009.
The property in Yarrow Point, WA, is listed for $3.149 million. The six-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom contemporary residence is presented by REALTOR® Debbie Jaeger and has been totally overhauled since Mora originally purchased it.
Now filled with beautiful finishes and jazzy improvements, there are beautiful blonde hardwoods—sleek and satiny—that complement the home’s clean lines and sharp finishes.
The gourmet kitchen, with the requisite stainless steel appliances (side-by-side ovens with a six-burner gas range, a SubZero fridge and more) as well as custom cabinetry and an expansive island, is the heart of the home and appointed with every imaginable accoutrement.
There also is a master suite with a private deck, complete with gorgeous lake views. A theatre room, a gaming center, a wet bar and an art studio round out the special touches—not to mention seven built-in, flat-screen TVs.
On top of all of this, the property includes separate guest house with its own bath, as well as a relaxing patio and built-in BBQ station.
Jim Mora has led the Bruins to two straight bowl appearances in his first two seasons in Westwood, and he is aiming for an even bigger prize with this year’s squad, currently ranked No. 14 by the Associated Press: a Pac-12 championship.
Along with his wife, Mora also runs the Count on Me Foundation, a group that helps underprivileged children. He played collegiate football at the nearby University of Washington from 1980 to 1983 and began his coaching career there as a graduate assistant in 1984. Mora’s first head-coaching position was with the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons from 2004 to 2006.
