    Zagblogs reported that they initiated disciplinary procedures to fire him for cause.

          UConn’s got no money to pay anyone right now. Don’t think they can afford Pitino even if he’s cleared from NCAA sanctions.

            Pitino and the huge pile of NCAA drama that comes with him rules him out. Especially with the NCAA probe that is coming because of Ollie. That is the "just cause" they are invoking to get out of paying him any remaining monies. Otherwise, Pitino would be their top choice.

                If this turns out to be true, we will need a new thread. But there is speculation in Memphis that Tubby is taking preemptive measures of being fired... https://www.cincinnati.com/story/spo...ach/412772002/ It does appear that a new coach has already been identified.

                  Penny Hardaway is the fan favorite. If memory serves, we recruited him pretty hard out of high school.

                      Calhoun was dirty for years and years. The NCAA looked the other way for years. Now they bust Ollie for far less.

                        Ok if Ollie did all of these terrible things, then UConn should be put on probation. Are they?

                          They had two violations in 2011 under Calhoun. I've been trying to find the probation rules on repeat violators for a bit now. Seems like it was a repeat in 5 years causes probation.

                          I think they'll lose scholly's, get recruiting restrictions and get an instituional control charge. Ollie will get a show cause based on the fact that some of this stuff was pretty blatant. That would be the 2nd institutional control violation in a 6 year period for them.
