Kevin Ollie has a new job, his first since he parted ways with UConn three years ago, four years after winning the national championship over John Calipari’s Kentucky. (Sorry for bringing that up.)
Ollie’s new gig will be the head coach of Overtime Elite, a new professional league for high school players ages 16 through 19 years old. The new league is being formed by the popular Overtime social media brand that produces highlight reels, and its pitch is a new transformative route to playing basketball professionally without having to attend college.
Overtime Elite intends to pay at least $100K plus benefits and a tutoring education to around 30 high school basketball prospects willing to surrender their college eligibility for an earlier payday.
