For those who do not know, during fall of 2013, UCLA introduced the idea of building a new training facility for the football program known as the Wasserman Football Center. The new center is expected to serve as a home for players, coaches, and the staff of UCLA football. They also announced that funds for the new center would be raised through private campaigns.
Thanks to donations by alumni, fans, friends, and coaches, the planned facility will begin it’s construction process in mid-August, which is in fact ahead of schedule. There will also be a groundbreaking ceremony for the Wasserman Football Center and the Mo Ostin Basketball Center on Aug. 27.
In honor of Jim and Shannon Mora’s support, the coaches’ outdoor terrace of the Wasserman Football Center will be named after their family.
Although UCLA did not share exactly how much the donation consisted of, after the Mora donation, they announced that they are within $10 million of the original $65 million fundraising goal.
With this donation, Mora may finally be able to put the rumors of him leaving LA to rest.
