Announcement of firing was around 2:05 AM Eastern time by The Athletic.
10 minutes later we spoke with Jake Kyman, who’s signed to UCLA for next season, his words on the firing:
“Things happen and the basketball environment is a crazy one but at the end of the day I have nothing but love and respect for the coaching staff for what they stand for and believing in my talents and making me dreams a reality of playing at UCLA with that being said whoever the new coach is I’m going to get to know him and just work my hardest to play on the court and show my skills and talents”
This morning, we spoke with Grant Sherfield who’s also signed to UCLA, his words, quite different:
“I am evaluating the situation at UCLA and will make a decision on my college future in the near future.”
We’ve yet to hear from Jamie Jaquez.
