UCLA coach Jim Mora has signed a two-year contract extension with the school, meaning he is under contract with the Bruins through the 2021 season, the school announced Tuesday. 

The details of the contract have not yet been released.

Mora is slated to earn $3.45 million in 2016, with his salary increasing by $10,000 each season until 2019.

The 54-year-old is one of the most successful coaches in UCLA history, guiding the Bruins to bowl games in each of his first four seasons, including two 10-win seasons.

The Bruins are expected to be one of the top teams in the Pac-12 in 2016, with quarterback Josh Rosen looking to build off a freshman All-American showing in 2015.
