In this special emergency episode of the What’s Bruin Show, host Mike Regalado examines why UCLA must fire Steve Alford now. Not tomorrow. Not at the end of the season. NOW!
There is an infinite amount of reasons why UCLA basketball head coach needs to be fired. The Bruins’ loss to Liberty was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Well, there were several straws in the last few seasons, but the double-digit loss to Liberty made it apparent that UCLA is going nowhere under Steve Alford.

With UCLA losing 73-58 against to a team that should never beat a Pac-12 team (this was their first ever win against a Pac-12 team) let alone UCLA, I did an emergency podcast with the help three special guest hosts and the reactions from Bruins fans via Twitter.
In the first part of the podcast, my three young children chat with me about UCLA’s horrible loss in what I call a “Cute cast”, mostly so that I do not cuss up a storm talking about Alford.
Things get a little more lively after I put them to bed in the second part of the podcast. This is where I read comments from Twitter, which gets a little NSFW.
In addition to that, per one follower’s request, I read Steve Alford’s letter he wrote to the UCLA fan base back in 2016 when gave back his extension and try not to laugh. I failed miserably.
Still, it all shows us that things need to change. UCLA must fire Steve Alford, NOW!
