The LA Times viewed a text that Josh Rebholz, UCLA’s senior associate athletic director, sent to major donors explaining the progress of the search after top candidate John Calipari agreed to a lifetime contract with Kentucky. The text shared that the Bruins’ list started with more than 60 candiates including Calipari, Brad Stevens, Tom Izzo, Billy Donovan, Mark Few and Tony Bennett. Despite efforts to recruit top names, the text reads that Calipari was the only "home-run" candidate to show interest.

In the text, Rebholz described the Calipari pursuit. He also discussed how the school used a firm to vet candidates, which left a list of "untouchables" due to NCAA violations, "infidelity, very low character, etc." He closed the text hopeful, saying they had two to three solid names they could land.

UCLA reportedly offered Jay Wright ridiculous amount he turned down

If true, this UCLA coaching search makes a lot more sense. In some ways it's less embarrassing, but in other ways, it's actually more.

"IF TRUE" is the key phrase for sure. In this case, the LA Times writes the story and everybody else quotes from that single story, and in some cases puts their own spin on it with no original sourcing or fact-finding. As far as we really know, much of the original story could be conjecture, gossip, or just flat out purposeful fake news. Who knows if the original "journalist" has an agenda.
