Seat getting hotter for UCLA coach Steve Alford

The stability of Steve Alford’s job at UCLA has come under question. Things have only escalated since the Bruins’ early NCAA Tournament exit.

UCLA loss to St. Bonaventure on Tuesday has intensified demands for Alford to lose his job. According to Tracy Pierson of 247 Sports, Alford’s position is not in jeopardy at this time.

Alford’s job security could change in the future if enough boosters request that UCLA fires him.

In five seasons, Alford’s 67.2 percent winning percentage is the lowest of any UCLA coach since  Walt Hazzard’s 62.1 percent winning percentage in 1948. A lot of people, including Alford, weren’t even born when that took place.

Alford’s contract runs through the 2021 season. However, he might not make it through his deal.

Los Angeles is know for its great weather but Alford will be sitting in a hot seat in Southern California.
