There is still no official confirmation to put Butler basketball fans at ease, but there are multiple reports surfacing that Bulldog coach Brad Stevens has turned down an opportunity to become the next coach at UCLA.
"We are not commenting on any job speculation," Butler Associate Athletic Director for Sports Information Jim McGrath said Friday afternoon.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Stevens has said no after considering the opportunity according to a person familiar with the situation who was not authorized to speak on the matter.
Earlier Friday, Stevens gave an early indication of his future, as he tweeted that he was looking forward to spring workouts next week with his Butler players.
Furthermore, he has an interview commitment with The News-Sentinel on Monday.
