The UCLA coaching search is officially a disaster.
ESPN’s Chris Low reports Rick Barnes will remain at Tennessee. UCLA tried to lure the Naismith Coach of the Year away from Knoxville with a $5 million per year deal, but according to Evan Daniels, the Bruins botched the deal in the eleventh hour.
Without Barnes in the picture, UCLA will likely turn its attention back to Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin. Woof.
In an ironic twist, the UCLA basketball coaching search has turned into a bigger joke than Tennessee football’s last coaching search, all thanks to the Tennessee basketball coach.
