UConn athletics deficit climbed to $53 million in ’22

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut’s athletic department deficit rose to $53 million during the 2022 fiscal year. The school says the increase can be attributed to $13.4 million it was forced to pay former head men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie. The deficit  was covered by $46.5 million in direct support from the school and another $6.5 million in student fees.
