    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    OllieWhen Roselle (N.J.) Catholic coaches Dave Boff and Tommy Sacks booked UConn coach Kevin Ollie for their Coaches’ Clinic, they had no idea they would be hosting the coach of the NCAA champions.

    But fresh off winning UConn’s fourth national championship Monday night in Arlington, Texas, Ollie is slated to appear at the New Jersey school on Friday. The clinic benefits St. Joseph the Carpenter Church.

    “To have Coach Ollie of the National Champions at the NJ Coaches’ Clinic takes the event to another level,” Boff told SNY.tv.

    “He is young, energetic and I think people are very excited to see him speak not only about Xs and Os but also hopefully about the run UConn just had.”

    Joining Ollie will be SMU coach Larry Brown, St. John’s coach Steve Lavin, Temple coach Fran Dunphy, Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin, N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried and Miami coach Jim Larranaga.

    Here’s the schedule:

    7:30-8:35 a.m. – Registration/Continental Breakfast

    8:40-12 – Session 1 coaches

    12:05-1:10 – Free lunch provided

    1:15-4 – Session 2 coaches

     

    Registration fees are $125 if registered before March 25 ($150 after March 25)

     

    Open to coaches at all levels
