UCLA rebuts reports that they’ve fired Ben Howland

UCLA v Arizona - Quarterfinals

UCLA released the following statement late on Saturday night:

“Contrary to multiple media reports this evening, UCLA has not fired men’s basketball coach Ben Howland.”

So I guess that means that this post is wrong? Wrong for now? Did he resign instead of get fired?

Is it OK if I don’t care one iota about Ben Howland during the middle of the NCAA tournament?
