This a shock to me, she had the 2nd ranked recruiting class coming in.

UCLA doesn't pay women's coaches very much. The sport means a lot more in the SEC. She sure is an attractive lady.

I'm sad for next year's team at UCLA, for the players left deserted by their coach and for the recruits that believed in their future with the coach's program, and for all the promises that went up in flames. :(

I know that Tennessee is pleased that Nikki Caldwell is back in the SEC but no one can replace the heartbreak of the team that she left behind. :(

In addition to being closer to home - I wonder if LSU will have a better chance at hosting the 1st 2 rounds of the tourney? (bitter hangover from loss to Zags?) It didn't sound like UCLA met the min NCAA standards or something...

Any of the UCLA commits want to come be Zags? If you can't beat'em, join 'em - that sorta thing?

According to this, Caldwell will make $900,000 annually, triple what she was paid at UCLA:

I wonder how they fund k-12.
