Steve Alford Didn’t Exactly Say No to the Indiana Head Coaching Job
Why would UCLA head coach Steve Alford leave sunny Los Angeles for Indiana? Well. He is kind of a legend in Hoosier country. From 1983-1987, Alford was the point guard under Bobby Knight and led the Hoosiers to the 1987 national championship.
The program hasn’t won it all since.
On Thursday, Indiana’s head coaching position became ope when the school fired former coach Tom Crean after nine years following a dismal season. Alford’s name will surely be at the top of Indiana’s list, along with coaches like Gregg Marshall of Wichita State and Archie Miller of Dayton.
Alford is currently trying to guide his loaded UCLA squad to a national championship as March Madness runs on. Alford was asked if he would leave the Bruins for Bloomington, but he didn’t exactly say no.
Alford answered the question without really answering it at all.
The Alford-to-Indiana talk will likely only get bigger if the No. 3 seed Bruins are knocked out
