UCLA fires Ben Howland as basketball coach

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In what turned out to be a last-chance season for Ben Howland at UCLA, he wasn't able to stabilize the storied basketball program that had been roiled by problems on and off the court.

Another early-round exit from the NCAA tournament hastened his firing after 10 seasons as Bruins coach.

Howland took the program to three Final Four appearances from 2006-08 and won four Pac-12 championships, including this season.
