STORRS, Conn. (AP) - UConn coach Kevin Ollie says he's listening to job offers, but isn't looking to leave Connecticut.
Ollie, who spent 13 years as an NBA journeyman before returning to his alma mater, has been linked to several NBA job openings, including with the Los Angeles Lakers.
He says he hasn't been soliciting job offers after leading UConn to the NCAA title in April.
Ollie was in New York on Wednesday with UConn women's coach Geno Auriemma to pick up Winged Foot Awards at the New York Athletic Club. Ollie says he loves UConn and is hoping to work out a new contract with athletic director Warde Manuel.
His current deal, worth just under $7 million, runs through the end of the 2017-18 season.
