With Shaka Smart and Brad Stevens apparently out of the mix at UCLA, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told SNY.tv that the school’s boosters support the hiring of N.C. State head coach Mark Gottfried.
“Mark said he wants it and the boosters want Mark Gottfried,” the source told SNY.tv. “He’s got the support of the boosters.”
Smart is reportedly negotiating an extension at VCU, according to SI.com, while Stevens is said to want to avoid the limelight associated with Los Angeles.
consider the source. not too familiar with this guy, and he wouldn't be the first internet "insider" throwing sh1t against the wall hoping it sticks.
