Hall of Famer
I don't normally take joy in the dismissal of anyone. But today is a great day for UCLA. They finally freed themselves of a coach that was excellent at getting the worse out of every player he coached. Any wins the man had, were due to the talent he recruited, and not his coaching. Almost every player that played for him, proved to be better once in the NBA, than they appeared to be under his coaching. This is a coach that was able to recruit very good players because of the history of UCLA. I don't think there's a college coach that I disliked more than Howland. I'm very happy he gone, and I hope that UCLA is going after Brad Stevens as their next coach. If Stevens had been coaching this talented group of players, we'd be talking final four right now. Just my opinion!
