Joe Coleman May Be Leaving U of M
Guard Joe Coleman may have played his final game for the Gophers men’s basketball team.
“Joe has asked for his release,” a source close to Coleman told 1500 ESPN on Tuesday night.
The 2011 Minnesota Mr. Basketball wants to be released from his scholarship, though there’s still a slim chance he’ll change his mind.
Coleman is expected to meet with new Gophers coach Richard Pitino on Wednesday morning.
A Minneapolis native and Hopkins High School product, Coleman averaged 8.7 points and 3.6 rebounds last season in 34 games with 32 starts.
