New filings related to the arbitration process involving UConn and former men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie show that both sides in the case plan to depose of several more people connected to the program including former standout Jalen Adams and his father. Ollie maintains that the school did not have just cause in firing him from the program and owes him the more than $10 million of his remaining salary. Motions filed in recent days call for nine people to be deposed of, all of which appear to be granted or on track to be. The NCAA found Ollie did not fully cooperate in the infractions process and had concerns over management of the program. The program is on a two-year probation and had to vacate victories from the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. This week the arbitrator in the dispute ruled that Ollie is protected by a union contract, meaning it could be more difficult to prove there was cause for firing the coach. The case is currently on the court short calendar for Aug. 26. – Dan Brechlin, HARTFORD COURANT, Read More
