What's a coach to do?
Go golfing of course.
Kevin Ollie was at a charity golf tournament in West Hartford on Tuesday and talked a little bit about his contract, recruiting and NBA draft prospect to the media (video via New Haven Register).
The big news is that San Cassell Jr., a JUCO guard, is on campus and prized recruit Daniel Hamilton reiterated his commitment to UConn on Monday tweeting that he is going to at school later this month. Hamilton signed a financial agreement, and not the binding letter of intent, which has had the rumor mill churning for months.
Here's Ollie to the Hartford Courant's Dom Amore on the contract.
"It gives me security and the understanding I'm going to be here a long time," said Ollie told the Courant. "There is going to be speculation every year, but the kids know I have their backs and their best interests at heart. I have a five-year contract and I believe I'm going to be here the whole five years."Ollie also said he wanted to be here at UConn and doesn't know exactly what the future holds according to Bill Paxton of the CT Post.
