Al Golden Next On UCLA's Coaching List, According To Reports

Having been reportedly turned down by Boise St. Broncos head coach Chris Petersen, as is custom, the UCLA Bruins are setting their sights on Miami Hurricanes coach Al Golden, according to the Los Angeles Times and others.

Golden just signed a four-year contract extension with the Canes, locking him up (not locking him up at all) through 2019. The chance to leave the impending debacle in south Florida and join the nation's sudden hottest coaches conference could be enticing, but who leaves a school weeks after signing a mega extension?

Can't help but think UCLA's heading down another dead end, if this is really Plan B. But, hey, Miami didn't do Golden any favors by failing to warn him about the mess he'd inherit if he came aboard at the U.
