Considering the tenures of Calipari, Ford, Kellogg, and now Bergeron, it’s doubtful such activity was isolated to Jarreau and Gresham.Interesting read on Pat Kelsey's last minute change of heart on taking the UMass job. In part:
"Kelsey played for the late Skip Prosser at Xavier and was his assistant at Wake Forest until a summer day in 2007 when Prosser died in his office after jogging. He walked away from a five year, $4 million deal in Amherst that would’ve quadrupled his income. No official reason was given, but word had it that two UMass players had asked Kelsey if they’d be getting the same financial arrangement they had with deposed coach Derek Kellogg. Those two players are still in the game and playing for a team that’s in the NCAA title hunt". You can probably make a good guess on the two players alleged to be involved.
