Mora’s agent, Jimmy Sexton, on Friday released a statement on behalf of the Mora family. 

“After much thought and careful consideration, Jim and Shannon Mora have decided to separate,” the statement read. “This was a very difficult decision and they appreciate the respect for their family’s privacy at this time.”

UCLA is scheduled to open the season against Texas A&M on Sept. 3 in College Station, Texas.
