OLLIE OOP: In Hartford, Dom Amore reports UConn AD Warde Manuel plans to sit with men's basketball coach Kevin Ollie and "talk about a new contract, which will include more years and dollars" now that the men's team has won the national championship. Manuel said, "I'm going to enjoy this. And then we're going to sit down. Kevin knows how I feel about him. He knows I have a love for him, I know he has a love for this university. And when we sit down, I think it's going to be a great conversation." Ollie made $1.2M base salary this season, the "lowest among coaches in the Final Four, but he was only in his second year." He has "four years to go, but he is likely to get a longer deal" (HARTFORD COURANT, 4/8).
