It's been quiet on the UCLA front because their head coach has interviewed for the open Virginia coaching spot. There were rumors she was going to head to Texas Tech but it was just rumors, no interview, no interest. Virginia is a different story. Comparable academics to UCLA, better women's basketball history. Close's contract is up and Virginia will offer much better money, even with a raise from UCLA. Prepared to offer over 700k, so that would be almost 2x what UCLA pays. They took Joanne Boyle from Cal which didn't work out and took Bennett from WSU which did.
I think if they offer, Close leaves. She saw the graduation of Canada and Billings, which was a highlight for her and would likely see less production in the coming years because of weaker recruiting.
