Kevin Ollie demands retraction from UConn, may sue for defamation

Kevin Ollie demands retraction from UConn, may sue for defamation

In the latest development in Kevin Ollie's pursuit of a $10 million sum he believes he's owed, the former men's basketball coach intends to "assert claims against the University of Connecticut" for defamation and invasion of privacy after the school released transcripts related to an NCAA investigation, per a letter obtained by ESPN.

In the letter, which was sent to UConn President Susan Herbst on Tuesday, Ollie's legal team demands a retraction from the school, which recently released NCAA transcripts to media outlets -- in response to a Freedom of Information Act request -- that included a secondhand claim by former associate head coach Glen Miller that Ollie paid the mother of a former recruit $30,000 in exchange for her son's commitment.

Ollie's lawyers want a retraction from the school. They claim the NCAA transcripts detailed false claims and confidential information that was protected by FOIA laws because they're related to an ongoing investigation and personnel matters.
