Former University of San Francisco star Cody Doolin made big news today when UNLV’s Rivals site reported this morning that Doolin is transferring to UNLV for his final year of eligibility.
Doolin was never the most athletic player, nor was he the most talented player. However, he possessed specific intangibles that made him a great point guard. While at USF, Doolin played in 103 games and started in every one. The Austin, Texas product averaged 9.8 points, 4.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds in his career as a Don.
His career at USF abruptly came to an end this season, when Doolin got into a fight with a teammate at practice. He played in the first four games of the season for the Dons before departing.
The NCAA still needs to approve his move to UNLV, and would need to look into the reason why Doolin left USF. Based on some of the rumors circulating, it could prove to be a disastrous situation for the whole program at San Francisco. Of course these are just rumors, and should not be taken as truth. But there is always the possibility that they come to be true.
The NCAA rule on graduate student transfers is that the player’s new school has to have a master program that their previous school does not offer. Recent cases of this are Mike Moser transferring to Oregon from UNLV and Josh Davis transferring from Tulane to San Diego State.
