Manhattan College announced today that Steve Masiello will return as head coach of the Jaspers as soon as he completes his undergraduate degree. It was that lack of a degreeā€”or, more specifically, that he lied about having oneā€”that torpedoed Masiello's move to USF.

"I am extremely grateful and humbled by the opportunity to continue as the head men's basketball coach at Manhattan College," Masiello said in a statement. "I made a mistake that could have cost me my job at an institution I love. Details matter."

Masiello will be on unpaid leave until he obtains his degree from Kentucky. Below, Masiello's USF contract, which included language that specifically voided it upon a background check revealing his true educational history.
