Phillips out at OU? Ollie or Cross in?

Recommended Posts

Found this today on SB Nation:

 

"Sources close to Bobcat athletic director Jim Schaus tell us that the increasingly angry Ohio University donors and alumni are calling for Saul Phillips ouster as head coach of the men's basketball program.   While Phillips still has a year on his contract, major donors ramped up their calls to fire Phillips as they watched Buffalo, UMBC, and Loyola make March Madness runs similar to Ohio's success during the John Groce era.  Sources further confirmed that Schaus is in San Antonio this weekend and met with two recently fired coaches: Connecticut's Kevin Ollie and Texas-Arlington's Scott Cross.  Both Cross and Ollie are still negotiating with their former schools regarding the terms of their departure and refused to comment for this story.  Phillips, for his part, said only last week that he is committed to Bobcat basketball and had Schaus' full support."

Both would be great hires. Doubt Ollie would take the job.. As for Cross, I never want to see him again

Happy post April Fool's Day.

 

:wall:

 

Edit: Actually, after further thought, is the joke really on you and the OU fan base? ;)

Must really hurt to be a Kitten and watch Jerron Simmons play for the national championship when he completely choked in his last game at OU (dribbling out the clock against PCCC in the MAC semis).

To be fair it hurts to be a kitten at all times
