UCLA basketball Coach Ben Howland said that Internet rumors, picked by ESPN and fan websites, that he was headed to DePaul are false. A source with ties to the UCLA athletic department said that he had received no indications that Howland was entertaining offers from other schools.

Internet scuttlebutt began circulating Wednesday afternoon that Howland had been offered a hefty multi-year contract.


‘I am the coach at UCLA,’ Howland said. ‘I will never leave UCLA and will stay at UCLA as long they will have me.’
