Yeah, Yukon fired Ollie "for cause" in an attempt to avoid paying him the remainder of the roughly $3.5 million per year for the next three years because his contract states that if he is fired for cause, then Yukon can get out from underneath that guaranteed money.

Perhaps Ollie should state in his forthcoming lawsuit that what he did leading to the alleged NCAA infractions was know and condoned by the UConn administration and if true like acts were known and condoned during Calhoun's tenure.

Little zing in there by JC lol

Jim Calhoun: "I've always rooted for Kevin. that doesn't mean I'm as close as sometimes I'd like to be with Kevin. Kevin won a national championship for us, he was a terrific player for us and he's a great #UConn guy."

Just read a post by Adam Zagoria that the Conn program has suffered recruiting wise because it no longer plays SYR , Geo , or SJU and doesn't play at MSG.
They must be kept out of the big east and let them fade into oblivion.

Cal State Northridge has parted ways with former NBA player/coach Reggie Theus after five seasons, sources told ESPN.


My son goes to Northridge. I forgot they had a D1 basketball team.

The timing seemed odd but I just checked and the Big West only invites 8 of it's 9 teams to the conference tourney. CSUN was 9th.

That format is a recipe for firing at least one coach per year. Didn't Theus fail somewhere else?


Sacramento kings

His initial HC job -- two years at New Mexico State -- was successful (41-23, one NCAA appearance). He left to take the Kings job.


And his point guard was our own whoremonger, Elijah Ingram.

Whoremonger? Las Vegan, are you by any chance a fan of 18th-century bawdy novels?:)

By firing Ollie for cause they are admitting NCAA violations occurred and not just minor infractions.

Yep it's official. Should be interesting to see where UConn turns to next. They have deep pockets, but not sure how much of a destination they are looked upon at this point, especially playing in the AAC.


Being from CT fans want to hire Hurley. They fired Ollie using the pending NCAA investigation as the reason. Who wants to go to a school with an investigation. Sid Wilson must really love his transfer decision now.


yeah, I wonder if his Dad is going to use "what goes around comes around again"?

Not that I want to be known as a vulture, but does UConn have any recruits Matt can approach?

Would Tim Cleuss be a serious candidate for UConn. ?

Would JC ever go back for like 2-3 years to get the program back into relevance; he obviously still wants to coach, there was mention of him at a small D-3 school in West Hartford, St. Joseph's.
