UConn coach Kevin Ollie and the university are in negotiations to double his salary after Ollie led the Huskies to the national championship in April, sources with direct knowledge of the situation told ESPN on Friday.
Ollie was paid $1.25 million this past season, his second as coach.
In December 2012, Ollie was given a five-year contract worth $7.5 million.
The sources said UConn is looking to pay Ollie in the neighborhood of $2.4 million to $2.6 million annually.
perhaps an offer from the Los Angeles Lakers or another NBA franchise.
