UCLA head coach Jim Mora says Texas offered to fly his parents to every game on a private jet if he accepted an offer to become the Longhorns' head coach.
"I'm like, 'Is there a bottom to your bucket?'" Mora told ESPN he thought at the time.
Mora said he thought it was important to have his parents at his team's games. Mora's parents live in Southern California, about a two-hour drive from the Rose Bowl, where UCLA plays its home games. His father, Jim E. Mora, is a former NFL head coach.
Mora was also pursued by Washington, his alma mater.
UCLA plays Texas on Saturday in Arlington, Texas.
