USF Statement On Steve Masiello

Early this morning, The University of South Florida released a statement regarding the hire, then rescinding or that hire of Manhattan head basketball coach Steve Masiello:

“During the search for a new men’s basketball coach, an agreement in principle was reached by USF and candidate Steve Masiello. The agreement was pending a verification of credentials. Through the verification process it was determined the candidate’s credentials could not be substantiated and therefore he did not meet the requirements for the position. The national search continues and USF looks forward to introducing a new coach at the appropriate time.”

Jim Lighthall had reported earlier in the day on Fan Interference that any coach at USF is required to have a bachelor degree in order to obtain the position. Stay Tuned to 98.7 The Fan for the latest developments in their search.
