According to Jeff Eisenberg and Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, UCLA has fired head basketball coach Ben Howland, ending his 10-year reign in Westwood.
The move comes less than 24 hours after UCLA lost 83-63 to Minnesota in Round 2 of the NCAA tournament and just five years after Howland led the Bruins to their third consecutive Final Four appearance.
The latter should tell you just how bad this last half-decade has been for the once-proud program and how polarizing Howland was as a public figure.
In the slides ahead, we'll look back at Howland's Jekyll-and-Hyde tenure as the Bruins head man, from modest beginnings to dazzling heights to, well, here.
