BREAKING NEWS: Cody Doolin Leaves Team After Fight With Teammate

Multiple reports have confirmed that star point guard Cody Doolin has left the USF Dons because of a fight with a teammate. Doolin was the recipient of most of the punishment and soon after decided to book his flight home to Austin, Texas from Montana.

“It’s a little bit of shock there was surprise. Those guys are not brothers but they are pretty darn close. There’s a bond there, you know nobody knew what was going on, there hasn’t been any real conversation with those guys,” said Walters. “There are so many unknowns, we didn’t really know finally until yesterday that he wasn’t coming back. It’s an emotional time and there is a bond there but we got to move forward.”

This is not the first time that a player has left the USF Dons basketball program, but no one has left mid-season. Doolin was the heart and soul of the Dons basketball team as he had started 103 straight games to start his career. In fact, Cole Dickerson is now the only player out of seven players from Doolin’s recruiting class that played his whole career with the Dons. This year was supposed to be the rebirth of the USF Dons basketball program, but unfortunately it has already been marred by controversy.

“It’s been an emotional week. You know we wake up in Montana and we don’t know where he (Doolin) is. Is he coming back is he not coming back? What are the reasons? Now we have more information on that. We want to keep it private out of respect for Cody,” explained Walters.

The Doolin controversy has put a dark cloud over the University of San Francisco and it is a shame that such a brilliant career has ended in a brutal fashion. It remains to be seen how the USF community will react to the Doolin controversy.

“I love that kid (Doolin) but its time for us to move on. It’s time for us to focus in on this time. Now there’s a little bit of closure and we can get better everyday,” explained Walters.

University of San Francisco’s athletic director Scott Sidwell told a group of alumni before tonight’s game that he flew to Austin, Texas to meet with Cody Doolin and his family about the incident. Although Doolin will return to USF to complete his degree, he will not continue his basketball career with the Dons. Sidwell also confirmed that there was an altercation between two student athletes that went too far and that he will be looking into it as well.

“It’s good to put this thing behind us. People are still going to talk and they don’t know what they’re talking about.  We are being completely and totally respectful of Cody’s situation and how he wants to handle it. He is a USF Don and he will be a USF Don forever. I had nothing but good things in three years of coaching him. I love that young man,  he’s decided to make a change and we respect that,” exclaimed Walters.

  1. JC,

    Thanks for some clarification on the Doolin incident. In full disclosure, I am a Pacific alum and excited about the WCC basketball season as my Tigers have joined such a great league! This season will be exciting and I’m curious to see how my Tigers stack up. Some folks projected a sixth or seventh place finish but I KNOW they will finish higher. To me, fourth is pretty attainable, and maybe third place. But this USF team was supposed to be better than my Tigers. With Doolin leaving, this confirms that Pacific will certainly finish higher than the Dons.

    But how does something like this happen, especially when Rex Walters is considered such a “rising up-and-comer” in the coaching ranks? He already has had previous defections and now this? How is he able to keep his job? Most Pacific fans think that Walters is extremely overrated and only got the job because of his name and KU background. Since I assume you’re pretty close to the situation, answer me this: How hot is that seat for Walters right now? I’d assume it’s scalding.

    Hope USF can turn it around (not against my Tigers, of course) but feel free to e-mail me directly if you care to respond. Thanks for your work.

    Respectfully,

    C. Colton

    PS — Are you a USF alum or fan or just have great insider info?
