O’Neill reinstated by USC

REPORTS HAD A “DRUNKEN” O’NEILL SMACKING DOWN ON A 70-YEAR-OLD

So much for the rumors that USC was going to fire basketball coach Kevin O’Neill. USC Athletic Director Pat Haden has announced that the school is reinstating O’Neill after a one-game suspension during the Pac-10 tournament.

A blog broke the story that O’Neill and his wife had gotten into a drunken confrontation with some University of Arizona boosters Thursday night following the Trojans win over Cal. O’Neill’s wife then reportedly went after an Arizona booster named Pail Weitman physically. Weitman is over 70 years old. Pointguardu.com is reporting that both O’Neill and his wife were “visibly intoxicated” and that he blames Weitman for his firing at UA several years ago.
