B-Diddy is one of the greatest UCLA Bruins ever … and tells TMZ Sports the former Suns head coach and ex-UCLA player is the right man to replace Steve Alford in Westwood.
In fact, Baron wants to see Earl coach the team so badly … he says he’d be down to be on Watson’s staff — and UCLA wouldn’t even have to pay him!!
“If Earl Watson was the head coach, I would coach for free. I would do whatever for free.”
Watson — whose NBA career spanned from 2001 to 2014 — has been out of professional coaching since being fired by the Suns last season.
