Maybe

this is why ESPN hired Fran Fraschilla. Not. Bad. Punditry.

Even Larry Brown didn't last long in Westwood, despite reaching the 1980 NCAA finals in his first of two seasons with the Bruins. It's possible that Ben Howland's honeymoon as the Bruins' new coach will last a little longer than most because of his success at Pittsburgh. His reputation precedes him. Steve Lavin, who replaced his boss, Jim Harrick, as the Bruins' head coach, did not enjoy the same luxury because he was perceived not to have the experience necessary to coach at UCLA and continue the Wooden legacy. Ironically, his six Sweet Sixteen appearances may be the standard that Howland is measured by and not the Wizard of Westwood's 11 national titles.
