It never pays to lie, especially on your resume. Former
found out years ago when he lost the
job for fudging his credentials.
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.
Masiello, who led Manhattan to the
Pitino, now the coach at Louisville, told
"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.
