Jim Mora has informed Texas that he's not interested in the Longhorn head coaching job, according to sources.

Texas and Mora's representatives were in contact and had discussions Thursday. The job wasn't formally offered to Mora, but it was discussed in a way that if Mora wanted it, the job was available.

The terms were not disclosed, but sources are indicated that the salary would have made Mora one of the top three highest-paid coaches in the country, provided a big pool for assistants salaries and greatly supported Mora's charitable endeavors.

Sources are indicating that Mora's bond with the UCLA team, the feeling that he's building something at UCLA and not wanting to uproot his family were big factors.
