ESPN is reporting that the discrepancy on Steve Masiello’s background check is that the former University of Kentucky walk-on never graduated from UK even though his resume says otherwise.
It was reported Tuesday that the Manhattan coach had accepted an offer to be South Florida’s head coach. Late Tuesday night, however, the school rescinded the offer because of a problem turned up by the background check.
Masiello’s Manhattan bio lists the coach as being “A 2000 graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in communications.”
