ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman is reporting Steve Masiello will receive his undergraduate degree from UK in August, now that he has completed all of the necessary coursework to graduate. University of Kentucky spokesman Jay Blanton confirmed the news to Goodman today.

Manhattan put Masiello on unpaid leave back in April but said he would be reinstated once he earned his degree.

Go Jaspers.

    I hope the Jaspers lose every game, unless they play the Cards

    Already? Did he need like 1 hour of coursework to finish?

    Sounds like he just had to finalize a few things he didn’t do when he was supposed to. Maybe it really was just a misunderstanding?

    Probably just forgot to turn in that final assignment. Happens to us all, right? 😉

    GREAT, NOW HE CAN GET HIRED BY USF AND WE CAN HAVE ANTIGUA BACK.

    (sorry for shouting, it just sucks.)

      I know we miss Antigua, but he deserves to be a head coach. He was leaving anyway. He needs the experience of running everything if we want him to be our coach someday.

    That’s very weird. As a basketball fan, I want to know how he finished a degree that fast. As a Kentucky basketball fan, I do not want to know anything. Let’s just keep it on the down-low. Seems a bit fishy to me. LOL.

    He probably forgot to apply for graduation, or had to take a certification test to get his degree. You’d think he’d have known there were more forms to fill out before you get anything as important as a piece of paper certifying you know something about something.

      Do you have to take a certification test to graduate with a degree in communications?

      You probably have to talk in front of people using whole sentences. Unless you went to Louisville, then you just have to be able to grunt and point.

    Should improve UK’s graduation rate right?

    I also hope he loses every single game unless he plays UL. He is NOT true blue or even a little blue; he cares only about Steve (which he probably learned from his mentor Prick Pitino) and he has said more negative things about UK after leaving than most die hard UL fans. I wish UK would have denied him his degree and forced him to transfer to another college. He, like his mentor, is a liar and is the ultimate prick!
