UCLA to Retain Steve Alford

UCLA intends to retain Steve Alford as its basketball coach, according to very good sources. 

After this year's team lost in the Pac-12 Tournament to USC and finished the season with a 15-17 record, the disapproval of the third-year coach from donors, boosters and fans appeared to reach an unprecedented level.

Sources, though, are indicating that there were enough very influential donors who favored keeping Alford, and that was a substantial factor in the UCLA administration choosing to retain him.
