There had been many rumors circulating about Ben Howland contemplating leaving UCLA for the head coaching job at DePaul.

We at Bruin Report Online had been told as much, from fairly reliable sources. He said:

"There is no way I am going to DePaul. There is no way that would happen. I don't know where the genesis for this started. I have no interest in leaving UCLA. I love it here. I have a great situation. We're going to get this thing back on the right footing next year. "The story is absolutely unfounded and untrue. "I am the coach at UCLA. I will never leave UCLA. I will stay at UCLA as long as they will have me." "I'm re-financing my house right now. So I'm not going anywhere."
