Los Angeles • 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, Howland was fired Sunday 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.

Howland had a 233-107 record as the longest-tenured coach in Westwood since John Wooden retired in 1975.
