Reportedly just turned down an opportunity for the UCLA job, so my guess is no.
Maybe far down the road that might change. But both Shaka Smart and Stevens apparently are not interested in supposedly one of the five most esteemed coaching jobs in college basketball.
Then again, I think UCLA basketball fans tend to be like ND football fans often do, believing the job is a calling from God. But when one coach after another gets fired there, even after three straight Final Fours (2006-08), they might wonder whether the aggravation that comes with that position is worth it.
Who wouldn't want to coach at Notre Dame where you can attempt to follow in the footsteps of legends such as Digger Phelps and ... well, Mike Brey, I guess, on a budget a quarter the size of the top programs in college hoops? I know I have trouble containing my excitement every time I walk into the Joyce and see all of the women's banners hanging from the rafters.

God. Country. Notre Dame.
not a chance. Stevens knows what he's got, and right now the Butler bb program is a much more coveted recruiting tool than ND's. and, not that i really care. but UCLA just had a massive brain fart in hiring Alford. wonder if they ever offered to Tubby Smith, that would have been my choice......
