Steve Alford was announced as UCLA’s new men’s basketball coach at a press conference in Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon.
After giving his opening statement and answering a question about recruiting the southern California area, Scott Reid, a reporter from the Orange County Register, asked Alford about his handling of the Pierre Pierce rape case, when Alford was head coach of the Hawkeyes. You can see the answer in the video above, and here is the transcript of Alford’s response to the question:
“Well, that was an instance that happened years ago at the University of Iowa, and all I can tell you with that situation is I followed everything that the University of Iowa – the administration, the lawyers that were hired – I did everything that I was supposed to do at the University of Iowa in that situation. I followed everything that I was told to do.”
