Celtics forward Al Horford, who is familiar with Matt McCall from their Florida days, on McCall getting hired at UMass: "He's a great guy. Just very energetic. Somebody that I feel like he's going to be successful wherever he goes, that's just the feeling I got, even when he got the Chattanooga job a couple years ago. Obviously, UMass is a big job for him. I think he'll be really successful there."

This could be very interesting for UMass and Pat Kelsey. Read this statement from AD Ryan Bamford: "The Memorandum of Understanding has a buy-out clause. It doesn't speak to specific jobs. It just speaks to his responsibility to buy the contract out once he has executed that agreement. For the first two years of the execution, it is $1 million. We have to work through that piece."

UMass announces Pat Kelsey asked out of his agreement at 3:30 p.m. Kelsey said in a statement that he asked out due to personal reasons. He said this decision was personal, nothing to do with UMass. He apologized in the statement. Kelsey was on campus Wednesday. Kelsey's photo is still the background on the UMass basketball twitter page. UMass released him, but the statement from AD Ryan Bamford said the school is still figuring out how this "impacts the executed Memorandum of Understanding." UMass will renew its search for a coach.
