Andy Katz was part of the widespread April layoffs at ESPN. He’s since found work as an analyst for the Big Ten Network and reporter for NCAA.com. He was in attendance for Jim Boeheim’s postgame presser last after Syracuse downed UConn and triggered an opinion from the coach.
“You should still be working where you worked but they are idiots up there,” Boeheim said. “Disney needs to make money, you know that. ESPN’s not making enough. We might not even get on ESPN anymore now. That’d be awful.”
It wasn’t so long ago that Boeheim was calling Katz “an idiot” right to his face. Time truly heals all wounds. On one side at least.
I guess Boeheim was trying to be nice to Katz last night but it’s always rich to hear a guy who makes over $2 million per year coaching players denied their fair-market compensation opine on a business unable to exploit such an morally murky inefficiency.
It’s clear Boeheim has a particular affinity for the “idiot” label, which is commendable. Very straightforward and underused insult.
