Alex Kline Was First About UCLA’s Firing Of Ben Howland!

BenThis is what he wrote on his Facebook page today!

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to break the biggest story of my life – not another recruiting story – but news of a major college firing their head coach. I took the chance, and trusted two key sources, and broke news on Saturday about UCLA’s plans to fire head coach Ben Howland on Sunday.

People thought I was crazy, and UCLA athletics came out with a release that night saying it hadn’t happened.

On Sunday night, UCLA retracted their statement and announced he had been fired. I take no joy in seeing a man be fired, but I am certainly excited about the opportunities this presents for my career in basketball. For once, I am reliable lol
