Ollie had been the Huskies men’s basketball coach since the 2012-13 season. He took over for Jim Calhoun when he retired on an interim basis, before being promoted to the full-time head coach thereafter.
The 14-18 record was the worst of his coaching career with the Huskies.
The first four years with the Huskies, including the National Championship in 2014, his team’s won more than 20 games. However, the last two seasons, his teams could not win more than 16 games.
The Huskies job was his first head coaching job at the college or NBA level. He went 127-79 with the Huskies as their head coach.
After being ineligible for postseason play during his first-season as the Huskies head coach – they went 20-10 in 2012-13 – Connecticut then went 32-8 in his second season. No. 7 Huskies defeated the No. 8 Kentucky Wildcats, 60-54, to win the National Championship at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
In their last four seasons, his teams did not win more than 25 games. They went 25-11 in 2015-16 before losing in the NCAA Tournament second-round.
The last two seasons, though, his teams have gone 30-35. However, they have gone a disappointing 16-20 within the American Athletic Conference.
The Huskies were also 0-11 vs. ranked teams over the last two seasons, as well.
