Ollie wins ruling on union protection in fight over firing
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The arbitrator in the dispute between UConn and Kevin Ollie has ruled that the former basketball coach is protected by a union contract when it comes to the standard the school must meet in proving his firing was justified.
