UCLA has fired basketball head coach Ben Howland, reports Yahoo! Sports.

Howland's job status with the team was at risk when the team lost 83-63 to No. 11 seed Minnesota in the second round of the NCAA tournament Friday.

When asked about his job security after the loss, Howland didn't have much to say.

"I have no comment. Anything in reference to any questions concerning my job status, I just want to talk about the fact that I am so proud of these kids," he said.
