After the NCAA Tournament, Williams predicts UCLA coach Steve Alford will leave for Indiana, a job vacated last week when the school fired Tom Crean. Given Alford starred at Indiana during his playing days, helping the Hoosiers win the 1987 national championship, that potential move makes sense. Alford’s replacement at UCLA? “I see Mr. Earl Watson, the head coach of the Phoenix Suns, coming back home to UCLA,” Williams said.
Stevens’ name has been rumored about after Indiana University fired Tom Crean earlier this week. Even if Stevens were interested, it would be next to impossible for him to leave Boston for another college coaching job. The Celtics signed Stevens to a six-year, $22 million contract when they hired him in 2013, and gave Stevens a three-year extension in 2016. The Celtics have no incentive to release him from his current contract to take a college job.
