Ed O'Bannon wants to be a college coach
Ed O'Bannon, who led UCLA to the 1995 national championship and has regained notoriety for his significant lawsuit against the NCAA, wants to become a college coach and is returning to school to get his degree.
O'Bannon, after 16 years out of school, on Tuesday began going to two classes at UCLA, where he'll be attending summer sessions and fall quarter in order to complete his degree.
Why would O'Bannon, a Henderson, Nev., resident, come back to campus after all this time?
"There are several reasons," he said in a statement. "I want to coach basketball at the Division I level so it's important to have a degree. Also, my children are old enough that they don't need me around all the time. The fact that I can go home each weekend and spend time with them is a plus."
