Marquette recruit hasn’t been released from his scholarship

After Buzz Williams announced that he was leaving Marquette to take the coaching job at Virginia Tech, recruit Sandy Cohen (Seymour) tweeted Saturday night that he had been released from his scholarship.  But interim A.D. Bill Cords said that was not the case.

Cords told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Marquette’s all-sports policy states that no student-athlete receives a release following a coaching change until he or she has the chance to speak with the new coach.

Marquette is currently searching for Williams replacement and have reportedly already talked with former UCLA and Pittsburgh coach Ben Howland about the position.

Cohen is one of four incoming freshmen signed by Buzz Williams back in November.  All of the recruits were reportedly told by Marquette assistants to sit tight until a new coach arrives.
