Along with a new blue home jersey, the UCLA football team will have an alternate navy blue uniform, head coach Jim Mora said Friday at Pac-12 Media Day.

Mora worked with Adidas to redesign the primary home look due to recent complaints. The jersey was released on Twitter earlier this summer. The head coach said representing the alumni and the university “the way they want to be represented” is important to him, so he softened the blue color on the home jersey, changed the shine on the pants and extended the shoulder stripe.

“The players love the look, I love the look,” Mora said. “I think it’s traditional. We put the TV numbers back on the shoulders. I love the uniform. I’ve always been a traditionalist. To me, it’s as traditional as we can get in this day and age.”

Mora said the alternate uniform will be the same structure as the primary jersey, but with possibly a different font for the numbers and a different color. The jersey will be navy blue and the players will wear blue pants, Mora said.
