The school announced in January in it was being investigated by the NCAA. But the decision is tied to the fact that UConn is now under investigation by the NCAA.

UConn has fired men's basketball head coach Kevin Ollie just four years after he guided the Huskies to the 2014 national championship, a person with knowledge of the situation told CBS Sports.

UConn is in the midst of an NCAA investigation into its men's basketball program.

"It is unfortunate that this decision became necessary", athletic director David Benedict said in a statement.

In firing Ollie with "just cause", UConn can recoup approximately $10 million, according to Goodman. "The University will have no further comment on the matter until the completion of both the University's disciplinary process and the ongoing NCAA investigation".

After winning the title in 2014, Ollie was considered a rising National Basketball Association coaching prospect with numerous rumors flying of college and pro teams trying to pry him away from his alma mater to no avail.

CT went 14-18 this season and 7-11 in the American Athletic Conference. But it may be part of an accumulation of misdeeds by Ollie and the program that the school will look to in terminating his contract "for cause".

Ollie led the Huskies to their fourth title in his second season, 2013-14, but has struggled as UConn faces new and geographically disparate rivals in the American Athletic Conference. "As with all of our programs, we hold men's basketball to the highest standards".

A move that would've seemed stunning two years ago was all but inevitable after the 45-year-old oversaw three straight subpar seasons in Storrs.

The Huskies went 20-15 the following season, losing in the NIT and bounced back with a 25-11 season in 2015-16, losing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
