Kevin Ollie is still the coach at UConn and Wednesday he reaffirmed that he does not expect that to change. "I love this university," Ollie said at the New York Athletic Club, where he was to receive the Winged Foot Award Wednesday night. "I'm not looking for another job. Of course, you listen to different things — I got two ears so I'm going to listen — but I'm not going out there soliciting any other job. I want to be here at the University of Connecticut."

"We're talking and hopefully we can get together once all this quiets down and me and [AD Warde Manuel] can have a nice talk and hopefully get everything situated." Hartford Courant
