Former basketball Cat Steve Masiello, who played at UK from 1997-2000 under Rick Pitino and Tubby Smith, did not get his degree from UK.
What does that mean for Masiello? It means he cannot take the South Florida job, which was all but a done deal until this revelation late last night by the recruiting firm hired by USF to find candidates and perform background searches.
Manhattan also requires its coaches to have a degree, so Masiello's not back to coaching the Jaspers at this point either.
The one-time UofL assistant is on leave as Manhattan's man.
This all after leading the Jaspers to the NCAA tournament and a near upset of his old employer in Louisville, last week.
