LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA hasn't fired Ben Howland as basketball coach, although his time in Westwood appears to be running out.
A school spokesman said late Saturday night that contrary to multiple media reports UCLA had not fired Howland.
Howland told the Los Angeles Times that he had not yet spoken to athletic director Dan Guerrero, who typically evaluates Howland and the program after every season. Yahoo Sports reported that Howland had already been notified that he was out.
The Bruins' season ended Friday with an 83-63 loss to Minnesota in the NCAA tournament.
Howland has a 233-107 record in 10 seasons at UCLA. He took the Bruins to three Final Fours and won four conference championships, including this season.
He has two years left on his contract that includes a $2.3 million buyout.
