Four and out: Reggie Kohn resigns
After just four games courtside with the Bulls, former USF star Reggie Kohn abruptly resigned Sunday night as the director of basketball operations, citing personal reasons.
Here's the fun chronology for you prospective reporters out there: You get a tip, you get it confirmed. Do you call the coach for a quote? Sure, you decide, so you call, leave a message, and a few minutes later, the official release goes out to everybody. Oh well. In retrospect, not sure what kind of quotes I would have gotten from McCullum. Here's the official release:
TAMPA, Fla. - University of South Florida Director of Men's Basketball Operations Reggie Kohn has resigned, citing personal reasons, effective immediately.
Kohn was in his first season with the Bulls.
"We regret that Reggie has decided to terminate his employment," head coach Robert McCullum said. "We respect the personal reasons for which the decision was made. It's always more difficult when you lose one of your own."
Kohn was a four-year starter and letterwinner for the Bulls who graduated following the 2002-03 campaign. He is USF’s all-time leader in assists (632) and 3-point field goals (252) and his 1,024 career points ranks him 15th on the program’s all-time scoring list. He earned a degree in physical education in 2003 after helping guide the Bulls to a pair of National Invitation Tournament appearances (2000, 2002).
"We thank Reggie for the contributions he made during his short tenure and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors," McCullum added.
