Manhattan coach Steve Masiello never graduated from the University of Kentucky, as indicated on his resume, and his falsifying this information eliminated him from getting the University of South Florida job, a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Masiello attended UK from the fall of 1996 to the summer of 2000 but didn't earn a degree, UK spokeswoman Ashley Caressen told ESPN.

According to an ESPN source, South Florida also talked to Mercer coach and Oklahoma City native Bob Hoffman about the job before deciding on Masiello. Does the elimination of Masiello open the door for Hoffman again?

Hoffman pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the NCAA Tournament by defeating Duke in the second round 78-71 last week.
