It’s hard being a UMass Basketball fan:
One day after signing a contract to become UMass' head coach, Pat Kelsey changed his mind, citing "personal reasons."https://t.co/f1jJerU9i9

Pat Kelsey had a change of heart and will not take the UMass coaching job, citing “personal reasons” for his decision. He instead will return to Winthrop, where he has coached for the past five seasons. Kelsey had signed a contract to coach at UMass on Tuesday. Athletic director Ryan Bamford said in a statement that Kelsey asked to be released from that contract at 3:30 p.m. ET Thursday — 30 minutes before he was scheduled to be introduced in Amherst.
“For personal reasons, I have asked the University of Massachusetts to allow me to be released from the offer I accepted to be the head men’s basketball coach. To be clear, this decision is entirely personal and in no way an assessment of the commitment UMass made to me personally or to the resources available at UMass to have a nationally-recognized program,” Kelsey said in a statement.
Later Thursday, Winthrop announced that Kelsey would return to the same position, with the coach saying in a news release: “I realized that at this point in my career Winthrop and Rock Hill is the best place for my family and me.”
And there goes the only undefeated coach in UMass history.

Can't wait for the 30-for-30 on the Pat Kelsey Era at UMass. So many memories.

Does it get any lower than this? We are a fucking JOKE. Everyone is laughing at us. This is the saddest picture I’ve ever seen:
We just put Derek Kellogg in the Turtleboy graveyard. We put hire this guy Pat Kelsey, who seems like a perfect fit. A successful coach from a lower conference who seems to always have his team in the tournament. Perfect.
Then literally 30 minutes before he’s set to give his introductory press conference he sends AD Ryan Bamford a message and tells him he’s not coming to Amherst for “personal reasons.”
What a gigantic piece of shit. I can’t put it any other way. Just a super, super chud move. If you don’t want the job, then don’t accept it. You signed the fucking contract shithead!! Don’t give me this bullshit about your stupid wife not wanting to leave South Carolina for a million dollar a year job in Massachusetts. Are you a fucking child? She’ll get over it as she sits at home all day in a big house that her husband is paying for. Threaten to divorce her if she won’t go. She’ll blink first because you have all the money.
Of course this wasn’t really about “personal reasons.” The rumor is that the reasons he did this is because Xavier coach Chris Mack is gonna take the open job at Indiana after Xavier gets knocked out of the tournament (which they probably will be by the time most of you are reading this). That leaves the Xavier job open and Kelsey has been promised the job.
But the saddest part about this is that Xavier is a vastly more appealing job than UMass. Xavier is a catholic school. Dorms are not coed. There are lots of rules. Meanwhile at UMass the policy is basically, “smoke em if you got em.” UMass should be an infinitely more appealing draw for a freak athlete C student who likes to party but doesn’t like writing book reports.
This is why winning is important. This is the long lasting damage that Kellogg has done to this program. We’ve been so bad over the last few years that the brand just doesn’t carry any weight to it. It’s a step up from Winthrop, but a huge step down from Xavier. It’s not enough to get to a tournament once in nine years, especially when you lose by 20 to a play-in team once you get there. Meanwhile when Xavier gets to the tournament, guess what they do? Win. They’ve made the Sweet 16 six times in the last 10 years. That’s more than Duke AND Kentucky. That’s insane.
Here’s my question – what happens if Mack doesn’t get the IU job and stays at Xavier? If you’re a Winthrop fan do you just give this guy his job back? How much of a bitch would that make you? Dude spit in your face and ran for greener pastures in Amherst. Then he fucked them over for greener pastures he couldn’t get. You’d be his sloppy thirds. So yea, if they actually let this idiot coach their team next year, then they’re the only ones who look worse than UMass in all this.
Marcus Camby does not approve:
Neither do the players.
P.S. ESPN lies:
Great hire by UMass in Pat Kelsey. Said many times, Kelsey gets it. He is all class and isn't afraid to speak… https://t.co/3yytUd6DF8
