It was announced on Friday that Kobe King is no longer a Nebraska Cornhusker.
“Kobe King has informed us that he will not be attending the University of Nebraska for personal reasons. We respect his decision and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” Nebraska head coach Fred Hoiberg said in a statement.
So let’s get this straight … Kobe King quit on the Badgers in January. Got the strength and conditioning coach fired. Ripped UW’s head coach Greg Gard and said other teammates were frustrated with Gard on his way out the door.
If the UW player were dissatisfied, it didn’t show. Wisconsin finished the season 9-2 following King’s departure, winning the final eight games of the season to win a share of the Big Ten championship. Gard was then named Big Ten Coach of the Year and hasn’t lost any players to transfer during the offseason.
King announced in February he was transferring to Nebraska. That came less than a month after quitting on the Badgers 20 games into the season.
Now he quit on his second school in a matter of five months before even playing a game for the new school.
