Oklahoma basketball coach Lon Kruger is reportedly being considered as the next coach at UCLA, according to Ben Bolch of the LA Times.
Latest I've heard is that Rick Barnes and Lon Kruger have been interviewed for the UCLA job, with Barnes considered the frontrunner. He's 64, two years younger than Kruger, and is coming off a national-coach-of-the-season at Tennessee.— Ben Bolch (@latbbolch) April 8, 2019
Kruger just finished his eighth season as the head coach for the Sooners, leading them to a sixth NCAA Tournament appearance in the last seven years. He has coached most notably at Kansas State, UNLV and Florida, earning 639 career victories.
At age 66, Kruger has been expected to finish his coaching career at Oklahoma and has his best recruiting class at OU coming in 2019-20.
