Manhattan basketball Coach Steve Masiello found out this week when he lost the head coaching job at South Florida after it was revealed he erroneously stated on his resume that he had graduated from the University of Kentucky.
The bio in Manhattan's media guide stated Masiello graduated in 2000 with a degree in communications.
Pitino, now the coach at Louisville, told ESPN he was shocked to learn Masiello had not graduated.
"When I left [for the NBA] he was on track to graduate," Pitino said.
South Florida will resume its search and it's unclear whether Masiello will be accepted back at Manhattan.
