10/6/2014 update: No wonder Rob Mullens tried to keep this one out of the papers too. KATU has some potentially bad news for Dana Altman’s future net worth, here.
KATU pulled court records showing [student] was found guilty of assault and battery, disorderly conduct and vandalism in his home state of Wisconsin about four years ago. Abdul-Bassit’s record before the theft citation is clean.
But here’s Altman’s contract. It looks like Mullens gave him a pretty lax termination for cause clause:
So I’m guessing Uncle Phil’s going to have to pay for an even bigger buyout than Gottfredson’s.
10/4/2014: Coach Altman gets $1.35M. His players get zip. Guess who’s shoplifting food?
RG story here.
The last we heard from Duck basketball coach Dana Altmann the NCAA was refusing to believe that two of his prized recruits had the academic credentials to enter college. That’s right, his standards are lower than the NCAA’s.
The time before that, he was being interviewed about gang rape allegations involving three of his transfer students. The DA believed it happened, but he didn’t think he could convince a jury it was rape. And now two more of Altman’s transfer students have been arrested, for stealing food from the grocery store across the street from Phil Knight’s $235M Matt Court Arena.
Altman is a desperate coach who has lost control. Rob Mullens needs to get rid of him before he does any more damage to UO.
